The Washington Supreme Court adopted a rule allowing licensing of a new category of legal practitioners. Admission and Practice Rule 28, the limited practice rule for Limited License Legal Technicians, opened the door for licensed individuals who are not lawyers and who meet certain educational requirements, to advise and assist clients in approved practice areas of law. The first approved practice area is domestic relations.
The Supreme Court appointed a 13-member Limited License Legal Technician Board to develop and administer the license program with administrative support from the WSBA.
All three candidates who sat for the spring 2016 LLLT Licensing Exam passed the exam.
