New Lawyer Education (NLE) is a WSBA program designed to guide new lawyers in the first years of their career. NLE seminars and materials emphasize building a strong foundation in practice management, relationship building, interpersonal communications, work-life balance, ethics, and professionalism. 

NLE also seeks to provide a solid framework for career specialization, such as business law or estate planning. NLE products are offered at a reduced rate for WSBA member attorneys who have been admitted to the Washington State Bar Association for less than five years.
