Bar membership remains mandatory, but top Neb. court restricts activities on which dues can be spent

Martha Neil reported at ABA Journal.
"The bar's lobbying activities can continue, but will be funded by separate dues from members who 'opt in' to make the extra payment.

"Currently, bar dues are $275 annually, plus another $60 that goes to the counsel for discipline, reports the Lincoln Journal Star.

"The supreme court lowered annual dues to $38, plus the $60 assessment."
