California's attorney membership is divided into 3 compliance groups. Compliance periods for the three groups are staggered, so that each group reports compliance in a different year. Compliance periods are 36 months in length.
Just prior to the end of a group's compliance period, the State Bar sends compliance cards to those who must comply that year. The table above lists the next reporting deadline for each compliance group and the breakdown of the 25-hour education requirement.
