      heres one for frog farmer and fans of California business and
      professions code 6067, which I include for reference

      6067. Every person on his admission shall take an oath to support
      the Constitution of the United States and the Constitution of the
      State of California, and faithfully to discharge the duties of any
      attorney at law to the best of his knowledge and ability. A
      certificate of the oath shall be indorsed upon his license.


      BUSINESS AND PROFESSIONS CODE
      SECTION 6125-6140.05




      6125. No person shall practice law in California unless the person
      is an active member of the State Bar.



      6126. (a) Any person advertising or holding himself or herself out
      as practicing or entitled to practice law or otherwise practicing law
      who is not an active member of the State Bar, or otherwise
      authorized pursuant to statute or court rule to practice law in this
      state at the time of doing so, is guilty of a misdemeanor punishable
      by up to one year in a county jail or by a fine of up to one thousand
      dollars ($1,000), or by both that fine and imprisonment. Upon a
      second or subsequent conviction, the person shall be confined in a
      county jail for not less than 90 days, except in an unusual case
      where the interests of justice would be served by imposition of a
      lesser sentence or a fine. If the court imposes only a fine or a
      sentence of less than 90 days for a second or subsequent conviction
      under this subdivision, the court shall state the reasons for its
      sentencing choice on the record.
      (b) Any person who has been involuntarily enrolled as an inactive
      member of the State Bar, or has been suspended from membership from
      the State Bar, or has been disbarred, or has resigned from the State
      Bar with charges pending, and thereafter practices or attempts to
      practice law, advertises or holds himself or herself out as
      practicing or otherwise entitled to practice law, is guilty of a
      crime punishable by imprisonment in the state prison or a county
      jail. However, any person who has been involuntarily enrolled as an
      inactive member of the State Bar pursuant to paragraph (1) of
      subdivision (e) of Section 6007 and who knowingly thereafter
      practices or attempts to practice law, or advertises or holds himself
      or herself out as practicing or otherwise entitled to practice law,
      is guilty of a crime punishable by imprisonment in the state prison
      or a county jail.
      (c) The willful failure of a member of the State Bar, or one who
      has resigned or been disbarred, to comply with an order of the
      Supreme Court to comply with Rule 9.20 of the California Rules of
      Court, constitutes a crime punishable by imprisonment in the state
      prison or a county jail.
      (d) The penalties provided in this section are cumulative to each
      other and to any other remedies or penalties provided by law.



      6126.3. (a) In addition to any criminal penalties pursuant to
      Section 6126 or to any contempt proceedings pursuant to Section 6127,
      the courts of the state shall have the jurisdiction provided in this
      section when a person advertises or holds himself or herself out as
      practicing or entitled to practice law, or otherwise practices law,
      without being an active member of the State Bar or otherwise
      authorized pursuant to statute or court rule to practice law in this
      state at the time of doing so.
