WSBA Call to Duty

The WSBA Call to Duty Pledge asks you to commit in serving Washington veterans in 2016. As part of the pledge we will support you by providing resources both legal and nonlegal to serve veterans, education and CLEs, and the chance to answer the various calls to duty in serving veterans.

WSBA Call to Duty Pledge 

I pledge to serve veterans this year in one or more of the following ways:

  • Use my legal skills to advise a nonprofit organization that serves veterans.
  • Mentor those who take pro bono cases serving veterans.
  • Teach at a CLE on veteran legal issues.
  • Volunteer for one of the Call to Duty’s Days of Service or with the WA Vets Will Clinic.
  • Take a low-fee veteran's case through the WSBA Moderate Means Program.
  • Take a pro bono case from an organization who serves veterans.
  • Become certified to take a VA benefits case.

Pledges are automatically added to our “Call to Duty Pledge” list serve. This list serve provides the following announcements and opportunities:

  • Monthly Lunch and Learn sessions – webinars that highlight legal and nonlegal resources helpful for serving veterans and their families.
  • Volunteer openings across the state.
  • Access to free CLEs on issues veterans face.
  • Pro bono case placement.
  • Success stories from our members and our veterans.
  • Being first to sign-up for the Days of Service.

Members who fulfill the pledge will receive a lapel pin, be distinguished in NWLawyer magazine, and be invited to a WSBA Call to Duty awards ceremony each January.
