President’s Update: Week In Review

WSBA President Michele Radosevich attends KABA’s annual banquet and the BOG Diversity Committee meeting.

WSBA President Michele RadosevichLast week I attended the Korean-American Bar Association’s annual banquet. Steve Kim, a King County deputy prosecutor, keynoted the event, describing his adventures in Korea as a Visiting Scholar Prosecutor for the Ministry of Justice. It was a great reminder of how lucky we are to have jury trials and a legal system in which there are checks and balances on all of the decision-makers. It says something good about our system that it is being emulated in so many places around the globe.

I also attended a meeting of the BOG Diversity Committee, which is doing great work. The members are continuing to delve deeper into last year’s membership study and look at specific diversity groups within the membership. They are also looking at successful mentoring programs and trying to get this information out to minority and specialty bars, law schools, and others who might be interested in starting a mentorship program.

It’s hard to believe we’re already heading into March. As always, if you have any questions or input for me, please feel free to contact me at micheleradosevich@dwt.com.

    Hello Michele,
    I am Style Advisor for the high profiled professional woman. Recently a transplant here from NYC and Ct. I was wondering if there would be any interest at an upcoming venue for me to speak on the topic of your appearance as a professional. Would a program like this work for the Bar Association? I have spoke to other Bar Association’s back East. In addition if you a have bulletin I could perhaps insert some tips of what may inspire express style for that on the go lifestyle.

    “It was a great reminder of how lucky we are to have jury trials and a legal system in which there are checks and balances on all of the decision-makers.”

    Too bad the same does not apply to the WSBA Discipline System … where both prosecutors and judges are selected on the basis of personal choice by the Executive Director or some other form of cronyism. The WSBA needs civil service reform and an independent panel for selecting actors in the discipline system. Enough of Tammany Hall!
