Welcome to the rank of Senior Lawyer! The Senior Lawyers Section is geared toward lawyers aged 55 years and counting or who have been in practice in any jurisdiction for 25 years.
The section hosts an annual meeting and CLE program, social activities, and a newsletter. CLE programs focus on issues such as ethics, computer use, retirement strategies, and appellate procedures.
Pursuant to the section's Bylaws, any active member of the Washington State Bar Association 55 years of age and older or who has been in practice in any jurisdiction for 25 years may be enrolled as a member of the section upon request and payment of annual section dues ...and for the purpose recommended by the executive committee of the section and approved by the WSBA Board of Governors. Inactive members of the WSBA and other lay persons may join as subscribers for the purpose of participating in the activities of the section but may not be involved in the governance of the section. Additionally, in accordance with the bylaws of the WSBA, law students may join the section as non-voting subscriber members.

In the words of past Chairman Fred Frederickson, "We have the best time of any section in the Association. Our longtime friends and compatriots at the Bar have much to offer each other."
