Washington State Bar Association Offers Services for Students
Continuing Legal Education
Washington State Bar Association-Continuing Legal Education is pleased to announce the new Student Tuition Waiver Pilot Program to allow law students from Seattle University School of Law to register, on a complimentary basis, for most of the one-day-or-less live seminars sponsored the Washington State Bar Association. Two students from Seattle University School of Law may attend each of the eligible programs. Space is based on availability.
In order to attend one of the eligible CLE seminars, students should submit a brief statement of interest to Dean Deming. Students will be selected on a first-come, first-serve basis. Information regarding attendees must be submitted to the Washington Bar Association at least five business days prior to the date of the seminar.
No student may register for more than two seminars a year and any student who fails to give timely notification of cancellation of his or her registration may not register again under this program for the remainder of the calendar year. A complete outline of the procedures is available in Dean Deming's office.
Lawyers' Assistance Program
The WSBA Lawyers' Assistance Program (LAP) offers long- and short-term psychotherapy for depression, addiction, family, relationship, health, and other mental and emotional problems to 3 and 4-L law students attending the University of Washington and Seattle University.
The cost of on-going counseling for law students is based on a sliding fee scale from $0-$30 and determined by the student's ability to pay.
