Upcoming Conferences in Washington

Coming soon:

  • 2006 Washington State Access to Justice Conference, June 9-11, 2006, Red Lion Yakima Center Hotel. This is sponsored by WSBA's Access to Justice Board. (Among other things, participants will have the opportunity to discuss Anne Fadiman's excellent book, The Spirit Catches You and You Fall Down, about the cultural disconnect between California medical professionals and a Hmong family whose child has epilepsy.) Law student registration is $40.

  • 2006 Washington State Bar Association Bar Leaders Conference, Access to the WSBA: Serving All 25,754 Bar Leader Members, June 9-11, 2006, Yakima Convention Center & Red Lion Yakima Center Hotel. This conference is for the leadership and leadership-to-be of various bar associations (e.g., county, minority, and specialty bar associations).(The overlap with the Access to Justice Conference isn't coincidental. Organizers encourage participants in the two conferences to visit both.)

  • Getting Ahead & Giving Back: Diversity in Washington's Legal Community, Seattle University, June 2, 2006 (reception the evening of June 1). The first annual conference on diversity in the legal profession, this meeting is sponsored by a coalition of minority bar associations. Law student registration is $25.
