The Live Scan form has the State Bar of California listed as my employer. Is this an error?
No, this is not an error. The DOJ Live Scan process requires the employer section of the form to indicate “The State Bar of California.” As part of DOJ and FBI procedures for sharing any criminal offender record information, the entity receiving this information must be listed under the employer section of the Live Scan form. The Live Scan vendor must enter specific information provided on the Live Scan form into the Live Scan software to ensure any information regarding the person’s criminal offender record information goes to the correct agency.
Please do not modify the prepopulated Employer section of the form. Changes to this section could result in failure to successfully submit your fingerprints to the DOJ.
*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
