The Senior Lawyers Section is geared toward lawyers aged 55 years and counting or who have been in practice in any jurisdiction for 25 years or more, although anyone may join the section. As one of the few Washington State Bar Association sections that does not focus on a particular area of the law, the Section engages in robust discussions about their members’ identity, navigating legal practice and life transitions, and keeping up to date on developments in the law.
The Section provides benefits to members by hosting an annual meeting and social activities. The Section also develops CLE programs focused on issues such as ethics, computer use, retirement strategies, and appellate procedures. The Section publishes a quarterly newsletter, Life Begins, which is geared toward active senior lawyers. Section members are encouraged to submit articles of general interest and on legal issues.
