CA Attorney Re-Fingerprinting


Reported on the State Bar of California’s website, the Supreme Court issued a new California Rule of Court effective on June 1st, which will require re-fingerprinting most active California attorneys.

Starting June 1, 2018:

  • The State Bar will issue instructions, FAQs, mandatory re-fingerprinting forms, a schedule, and other relevant information
  • Email notifications with more detailed instructions will be sent on a rolling basis until early August
  • Any attorney can begin the re-fingerprinting process by logging into their My State Bar Profile even if they have not received an email
  • Attorneys should not undergo re-fingerprinting until this information is released

The deadline to submit new fingerprints without penalty will be April 30th of next year.
