We are pleased to feature members of our Board of Trustees, who share why they got involved!
"In order for the legal community to continue to be part of our societal 'checks and balances' and protect our rights and values, it needs to reflect the makeup of our community. Supporting the Washington State Bar Foundation is one of the best ways to assure that everyone has the opportunity to become an attorney, regardless of social or economic circumstances, so the legal community will reflect the values and needs of our State."
RPC 6.1 states that each lawyer should aspire to providing at least 30 hours of pro bono publico hours each year. Any lawyer who reports performing at least 50 hours of pro bono publico in a calendar year is placed on the WSBA Supreme Court Honor Roll.
