Is the State Bar covering the costs of fingerprinting?
No. However, attorneys granted a specified fee reduction at 25 or 50 percent rate will be eligible to receive a one-time credit on their annual billing to cover a portion of the DOJ and FBI processing fees.
*The fingerprinting deadline falls on Sunday, December 1, 2019. Please note that Active attorneys who still have not complied by day’s end on Monday, December 2, 2019, will be enrolled as Involuntarily Inactive effective December 3, 2019
