Emeritus Status Information

Attorneys 70 years of age or older are exempt from paying membership dues if they have filed a written notice requesting enrollment as an emeritus attorney.

Each year, emeritus attorneys are mailed a membership statement that reflects they are not required to pay membership dues or the legal services fee. The annual membership statement will also provide information regarding the previous year’s section memberships and the amount of Access to Justice contribution made, if any. Please note that in order to maintain your current section memberships, request new section memberships, or to make a contribution to Access to Justice, you must return your dues statement with payment.

If you have questions about emeritus status, please contact the Membership Department: (800) 204-2222, ext. 1383.
