The Legislative Program is a year-round effort to share the expertise of the WSBA's more than 38,000 members with the state Legislature and its many stakeholders, subject to guidelines established by the Board and by state Supreme Court rule.
The WSBA's Office of Legislative Affairs is responsible for advancing and maintaining positive and effective relations between the Bar, the Legislature, legislative stakeholders, and the executive branch of government. The office also spearheads and coordinates the Bar's efforts to protect the public and serve our members in legislative matters relating to the practice of law and the administration of justice. Our participation in the legislative arena includes both seeking passage of Bar-request legislation and also providing input on legislation introduced by others.
The Legislative Affairs office is guided by the Board of Governors' Legislation and Court Rule Comment Policy and General Rule 12.1, and serves as the internal and external point of contact on all legislative matters.
Includes bills referred to WSBA sections for review and any positions taken during the current legislative biennium.
