We marched in the MLK Seattle march for the first time and in the women’s march the day after inauguration. We carried a sign saying, “No Muslim Registry” on one side and “Black Lives Matter” on the other side. We attended an event featuring Morris Dees, co-founder of the Southern Poverty Law Center, as the keynote speaker. Read more »

Why Wait? Meet Your Continuing Legal Education Requirements at No Cost

Did you know the Washington State Bar Association delivers FREE CLEs to members?

Did you know the WSBA delivers FREE CLEs to WSBA Members?

A convenient and consistent way to earn free CLE credits is to attend our highly popular monthly Legal Lunchbox series. The Legal Lunchbox CLEs take place noon-1:30 p.m. on the last Tuesday of each month via webcast, with the exception of August and December, when a recorded program is offered for viewing all month long. The programs are 1.5 hours long and provide a total of 18 free CLE credits to members annually. By taking the Legal Lunchbox classes, you can fulfill all of your MCLE requirements within a three year reporting period. Watch for eblasts which contain the registration links for the program. Two eblasts are sent to all WSBA members at four weeks and four days before the program delivery date. To receive these eblasts, please make sure you have not “opted-out” from email advertisements from WSBA. You can check by logging in to your MyWSBA account. As an added convenience, you don’t have to worry about reporting your credits after attending the Legal Lunchbox because WSBA will report them for you. Be sure to join the 1,500-plus WSBA members who log on every month to attend the Legal Lunchbox seminars. Recordings of past Legal Lunchboxes are available at a 50% discount. Read more »
