Legislative Engagement & Process

The WSBA Legislative Affairs program drives legislative efforts with elected officials, agencies, organizations, and key stakeholders who play a role in advancing and supporting WSBA-related priorities. The WSBA Legislative Affairs Manager coordinates WSBA and judicial interests within government relations activities, as well as the activities of the Board of Governors and Legislative Review Committees.

During the legislative session, efforts are prioritized around Board-approved legislation, but other bills that may impact the practice of law and the administration of justice are also closely monitored. During the interim, the WSBA Legislative Affairs team works towards meeting emergent legislative goals and prepares for future sessions through a collaborative process with internal constituencies and key external stakeholders.”
