Online renewal is now underway. Completing your license renewal and MCLE certification online is easy. License packets were mailed in mid-October.

Please note: Our service provider will charge you a separate, non-refundable transaction fee of 2.5 percent on all bank card transactions. There is no transaction fee if you renew online and mail in your check.

Payment plan option available
If you are experiencing financial challenges, you may qualify for our payment plan option or our one-time hardship exemption.

Optional donations
The license renewal includes two optional charitable donations. Donations to the Washington State Bar Foundation help advance justice through support of WSBA’s public service and diversity programs. Donations to LAW Fund’s annual Campaign for Equal Justice strengthen Washington’s civil legal aid network by supporting over 20 organizations statewide. We thank you for your help and generosity.
