Dues for Michigan lawyers going back up after surplus gets smaller

Judge hammer and money

LANSING, Mich. (AP) — It’s going to cost more to be a lawyer in Michigan.

The state Supreme Court is raising the portion of dues that is earmarked for attorney discipline. It’s going up to $105 from $90 and will rise again to $120 in fall 2018.

The fee was $120 back in 2011 before it was reduced a few times because of a $5 million reserve. That reserve is expected to be down to $1.86 million by fall.

Dues for attorney discipline enforcement are in addition to general membership dues.
