Reexamining Inactive Attorneys

Record #:
The author discussed the process that inactive lawyers undergo to have their license to practice reset to active status and the suspension of their license lifted. Reasons Hunt included for a law license becoming inactive ranged from the failure to pay State Bar membership, to complete the requisite CLE courses, or the amount of time for inactivity (which can range from one to seven years). The author also discussed measures attorneys can take to reinstate a license, such as paying membership fees, completing a set number of CLE courses, or the measures necessary for a lapse of more than seven years (which entails re-taking and passing the Bar Exam).
