WSBA New Lawyer Education Seeks Input for CLE Programming

Have you ever thought one of the following?

Why does starting a law career have to be so “sink or swim?”
Why isn’t there better training to help new lawyers succeed in practice?
How can I gain the opportunity to moderate, speak at, or develop CLEs?

If you are a new or young lawyer, join one of our upcoming focus groups to help create relevant CLE programs that build skills and confidence.

Upcoming New Lawyer Focus Groups:

Feb. 28: Criminal Practice
Mar. 14: Personal Injury
Mar. 28: Client Development
May 9: Corporate Counsel or Other TBD
May 23: Law Firm Management (Business, Finance, Budgeting, Scaling)

All focus groups will run from 12:00 to 1:30 p.m.

Pick a date and topic, and then share your perspective on steps and challenges for new attorneys. 

Attend in person in Seattle or by conference call. RSVP to Mikaron Fortier at

Your input will directly influence content for programs within the next year. 

Participating in the focus group may also open opportunities for you to suggest faculty and shape a program as a part of the program development team.

As an added benefit, participants in this year’s focus groups are eligible to receive a one half-hour complimentary consultation with WSBA’s Law Office Management Advisors, Lainie Patterson and Pete Roberts.
