Admission Requirements and LLLT Exam Results

Applicants must pass both the Practice Area (Family Law) Exam and the Professional Responsibility Exam. The Practice Area exam tests applicants on one specific practice area and knowledge of LLLT scope of practice specific to that practice area. The Professional Responsibility exam tests applicants on their knowledge of the LLLT Rules of Professional Conduct. If an applicant passes only one of the exams, the passing score may be carried over until a later exam, so that exam may not need to be repeated. The professional responsibility examination must be passed no earlier than 18 months and no later than 40 months from the date of the practice area examination in which the applicant received a passing score. The published exam statistics reflect only those applicants who, by passing one or both of the current exams, have passed both exams in the required time frame; it does not reflect those applicants who passed one of the current exams, but did not pass both.

Applicants must provide additional documentation and must complete all of the new admittee requirements prior to admission.

After an applicant has met all the requirements for admission, the applicant will be recommended to the Washington Supreme Court for admission as an LLLT.  Upon receipt of the admission order from the Court, the WSBA will assign the new admittee a license number.  Applicants are not permitted to practice as an LLLT until the Court signs the admission order and the applicant receives a license number.

Applicants who have passed the Washington LLLT Exam have 40 months from the date of the administration of the examination to complete the new admittee process and be licensed as a LLLT.

Due to COVID-19:

APR 5(f) - The Washington Supreme Court has issued an order temporarily waiving the requirement that the oath be taken in open court and authorizes judges to administer the oath remotely or virtually using face-time technology.  If the judge conducting the swearing-in agrees to conduct this type of process, please email the judge a signed copy of the oath form for his/her signature.  Once all parties have signed the oath form, the applicant is responsible to email a copy of the completed oath to lllt@wsba.org.  Please keep a copy for your records.
