LLLT Board

The Limited License Legal Technician (LLLT) Board derives its authority from the Washington Supreme Court under Rule 28 of the Washington Supreme Court Admission and Practice Rules (APR) adopted and effective Sept. 1, 2012, and as amended since that date. APR 28 authorizes a new level of licensed legal professionals who meet certain educational requirements to advise and assist clients on specific areas of law.

With APR 28, the Washington Supreme Court established the LLLT Board to oversee the Legal Technician Program. In December 2012, the Washington Supreme Court appointed the first LLLT Board, which includes lawyers and members of the public. The Board's charter for the first year was to begin creating and drafting the operational details for the Legal Technician Program. This included regulations for professional conduct, exam procedures, continuing education requirements, and disciplinary procedures.

The Board began its work in January 2013. As one of its first actions, the Board recommended family law to become the first practice area for Legal Technicians to be licensed for practice. The Washington Supreme Court unanimously approved the LLLT Board's recommendation in March 2013.

On Jan. 8, 2015, the Washington Supreme Court adopted the Limited License Legal Technician Rules of Professional Conduct. The LLLT RPC became effective Feb. 3, 2015.
