Regular dues for active members are $245 per year unless a member elects to use the income scale to determine the amount of his/her dues. Income is law-related salary, wages or income—after deducting office overhead and other ordinary and necessary business expenses—but before taxes, FICA, insurance, and pension contributions for the current year.
