Corporate Counsel Section

Corporate Counsel SectionMembership in the Corporate Counsel Section is open to any active member in good standing of the Washington State Bar Association. Our members include in-house legal counsel, attorneys in private practice who spend a substantial portion of their time working with in-house counsel, and other attorneys who provide legal counsel to businesses or non-profit enterprises. We urge attorneys interested in learning more about corporate law departments and general business and corporate law to join our Section. Law students may join as subscribers of the section, but do not have voting rights.

The Section provides a number of programs and other resources for our members. Our quarterly dinner meetings provide an excellent opportunity to socialize and network, and include speakers on various topics of interest to Section members. CLE credit is generally available for each dinner meeting.
