Online dues payment

The board of governors enacted amendments to the Cal. Bus. & Prof. Code §6140(b) on an interim basis to allow testing of online dues payment as a pilot project for new lawyers who passed the bar exam last month. Based on the response to and effectiveness of the program, the board will decide whether to adopt the amendments permanently and to make online dues payment generally available beginning with payment of the 2004 membership fees. The board will then also determine whether to charge members paying online an additional fee to defray the costs, as permitted by Cal. Bus. Prof. Code § 6140(b).
