On Tuesday, Jan. 29, 2013, Washington State Bar Association Executive Director Paula Littlewood and University of Washington School of Law Dean Kellye Testy held a town hall forum to discuss the future of the legal profession.

Littlewood and Testy were joined by an in-person crowd as well as online participants as they fielded questions and discussed whether these types of factors point to a crisis or a transformation.
