Membership in one or more of the WSBA’s sections provides a forum for members who wish to explore and strengthen their interest in various areas of the law. Nearly 1/3 of WSBA members currently belong to one or more sections.
Section membership provides ongoing opportunities for improving knowledge and professional development in many ways:
- Professional networking
- Resources and referrals to make practicing easier and more efficient
- Leadership opportunities
- Being “in the know”
- Advancing your career
- Affecting change in your practice area
- Skill development in involvement with programs and the legislative process
- Sense of community among peers
With 27 practice sections, we’re confident you’ll find at least one that aligns with your practice area and/or interest.
Leadership Opportunities: Each section is run by a group of volunteer attorneys who are elected to serve on the executive committee. Many volunteer attorneys find leading a section to be a rewarding experience with leadership growth, professional development, firsthand experience with the legislative process, and collegiality as benefits.
