WSBA COMMUNITY NETWORKING
WSBA CLE FACULTY DATABASE
If you are currently serving as CLE faculty, or are
interested in working with the WSBA as a future CLE faculty member, we encourage you to register in our CLE faculty
database. Serving as a faculty member provides you with the
opportunity to engage with other attorneys across the state,
give back to your profession, and advance your professional
growth. Whether it’s upcoming changes in the law, emerging
hot topics, or substantive content, our goal is to ensure we
are engaging with the right faculty at the right time, matching practice expertise and knowledge to our educational programming needs. We hope to capture the information of all
those who plan to teach—both current CLE faculty and those
interested in future opportunities. To register, please log on
to your my WSBA account, go to “My WSBA Profile” and select
“CLE Faculty Database Registration."
