Bar Association Revamps Member Model

The organization has lowered its dues to boost engagement, retention

The American Bar Association (ABA) is making a big change to its membership structure with a  key component: lower dues.

During its annual meeting this week, the ABA House of Delegates approved a change to the association’s membership fee structure [PDF] that will kick in starting in September 2019. Dues will drop by roughly $100 for most member tiers, which are based on how long a member has been in practice and the  the nature of his or her work. Those who have practiced law for less than five years will see their dues reduced by half, from $150 to $75.

Dues will remain lower for certain categories, such as solo practitioners and international lawyers and members will pay the lowest amount for which they qualify. Students will continue to receive free membership.
