The mission of the Washington State Bar Association is to serve the public and the members of the Bar,
ensure the integrity of the legal profession, and to champion justice.


The Bar operates under the delegated authority of the Washington Supreme Court to license the state’s more than 40,000 lawyers and other legal professionals. In furtherance of its obligation to protect and serve the public, the WSBA both regulates lawyers and other legal professionals and serves its members as a professional association — all without public funding.
