Legal Technology Task Force

The WSBA Board of Governors recognized the transformative impact of technology, particularly artificial intelligence (“AI”), on the legal profession, and adopted the following statement as one of four strategic priorities for the 2023-2024 fiscal year: “Assess technology‐related opportunities and threats and determine WSBA’s role vis‐a‐vis regulation, consumer protection, and support to legal professionals.” Creating the Legal Technology Task Force is one step in acting on that priority.
