Instead of paying online, can I pay by check?

My firm is paying for my State Bar annual fees. When can I pay for my CLA section membership?

Please note that if your firm is paying for your State Bar annual fees, the annual fees must be paid and processed by the State Bar before you are able to pay for your CLA section membership dues. If you are not paying your State Bar annual fees at the same time of your CLA section membership dues, please log back into your State Bar profile and process the CLA section membership dues separately after the State Bar processes the annual fee.
