The Washington State Bar Association and the Washington Young Lawyers Committee have prioritized the use of funds to send new and young lawyers to attend American Bar Association Young Lawyer Division (ABA YLD) meetings and conferences. This scholarship fund is designed to:

  • Encourage attendance and participation at the ABA YLD meetings
  • Ensure that Washington is represented by delegates to YLD Assembly at ABA annual and midyear
  • Create the opportunity for scholarship recipients to bring ideas back to the WYLC about how to engage and serve new lawyers in Washington.

Please check back in December for updates on the 2024 ABA Scholarship availability, application and selection processes.
