Limited License Legal Technician Board
The Limited License Legal Technician (LLLT) Board derives its authority from the Washington State Supreme Court under Rule 28 of the Admission to Practice Rules (APR), adopted effective September 1, 2012. APR 28 authorizes non-attorneys who meet certain educational requirements to advise clients on specific areas of law, which have yet to be determined.
With the rule, the Supreme Court established the LLLT Board to administer the program. The Board's charter for the first year is to begin creating and drafting the operational details for the LLLT program. This includes regulations for professional conduct, exam procedures, continuing education requirements, and disciplinary procedures.
The LLLT Board began its work in January 2013. As one of its first actions, the Board recommended family law as the first practice area in which to license LLLTs, which the Supreme Court unanimously approved in March 2013.
The LLLT Board will meet on June 20, 2013, from 2-5 p.m. and on July 18, 2013, from 2-5 p.m. at the Washington State Bar Association office. See the meeting materials for the May 16, 2013, meeting. See complete sets of meeting materials, including approved meeting minutes.
