San Francisco, Sept. 17, 2012 – Gov. Jerry Brown signed legislation today setting the State Bar annual dues at $410 for active members in 2013.

At the State Bar’s request, the dues rate for active members has remained steady for the last five years, with the exception of a one-time $10 rebate in 2012.

The bill, AB 2685, also fixed the annual fee for inactive members at $125. Attorneys will receive fee statements in early December with a due date of Feb. 1, 2013.
