Call to Duty Clinic Images

The WSBA Call to Duty Initiative Day of Service welcomes volunteer attorneys, limited license legal technicians (LLLT), law students, and paralegals to be a part of serving Washington military veterans through a full day of learning and giving back.

Legal professionals of all experience levels are encouraged to participate in these rewarding and engaging events. WSBA partners with a local qualified legal service provider to provide legal assistance at a Day of Service. The Day of Service begins with a free CLE seminar on a particular legal issue. After the CLE, volunteers are matched to participate in a two-hour legal clinic to put their new legal skills to use.

Benefits of Volunteering

  • Learn a new area of law.
  • Receive malpractice insurance during the legal clinic through a local qualified legal service provider.
  • Help a veteran and their family.
  • Learn from a free CLE seminar.
  • Receive free pro bono CLE credits for work under APR 11(e).
