Past Advocacy Highlights

 SB 163

  • The 2011 bill authorized the State Bar of California to assess 2012 attorney dues, and it increased the "opt-out" box on the State Bar dues invoice to member attorneys from $10 to $20. In 2011, the opt-out brought in over $1.6 million. LAAC hopes that with similar rates of attorneys not opting out, the legal services community might see as much as $3 million raised for legal services.
  • The bill also called for the transfer of $2 million annually from the State Bar non-mandatory dues (reserves) in both 2012 and 2013 - The State Bar generously supported this allocation.
