Beware California Lawyers: The State Bar Is Selling Your Email Address

If you're a California lawyer and wondering why all those emails from legal vendors keep showing up in your inbox, then look no further.  It's the State Bar selling your email address to make money.

But never fear, you can opt out of the State Bar's money-making program and save your inbox from a few more emails.  You can opt-out two ways. First, send an email to, and be sure to include your bar number.  Otherwise, you can go to this page on the State Bar website, then "Account Information" and select "Update my mailing preferences (opt out)."  It's slightly complicated, but you're sure to appreciate the reduction in spam.
