The WSBA Board of Governors is accepting letters of interest and résumés from members interested in serving on the Bench-Bar-Press Committee of Washington. Three positions are available. The three-year term will begin Jan. 1, 2014, and expire Dec. 31, 2016.
The Bench-Bar-Press Committee was formed in 1963 to foster better understanding and working relationships among judges, lawyers, and journalists. Its mission is to seek to accommodate, as much as possible, the tension between the constitutional values of free press and fair trial through educational events and relationship building. The committee is chaired by the chief justice of the Washington Supreme Court and includes representatives from the legal profession, judiciary, law enforcement, and news media. The committee meets as a whole once or twice each year. Subcommittees of volunteers are organized on an ad hoc basis to plan and execute events.
