At its mid-year meeting, the ABA House of Delegates slashed annual dues for solo attorneys by almost 50%, as reported in a ABA Journal LawNewsNow article.  The House also cut dues for government lawyers, judges, and legal services attorneys.

The new dues scale, which will be reflected in statements going out in May, is as follows:

  • $0 for lawyers in practice less than one year
  • $100 for lawyers admitted to practice for one year but less than four years
  • $125 for lawyers admitted to practice for four years but less than six years
  • $145 for lawyers admitted to practice for six years but less than 10 years
  • $225 for lawyers admitted to practice for 10 years or more

The dues cut came after the ABA undertook a comprehensive survey of 9,000 lawyers.  I think the ABA is to be commended for recognizing that lawyers have not been spared from these troubled economic times.
