The Legislative Program
WSBA's 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 of Governors and by state Supreme Court rule.
The WSBA's Outreach and Legislative Affairs (OLA) staff are responsible for advancing and maintaining positive and effective relations between the Bar, the Legislature, legislative stakeholders, and the executive branch of government. The OLA staff also spearhead and coordinate 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.
