The American Bar Association announced this week that it's cutting the cost of dues for solo practitioners, government lawyers, judges and attorneys working for nonprofits as part of an effort to respond to lawyers' differing financial circumstances and the effects of the economic downturn. The ABA said Tuesday that its House of Delegates had approved a new dues structure that will reduce costs by 50 percent for solo practitioners and by 25 percent for the other lawyers.
