LOMAP Lending Library
The WSBA Law Office Management
Assistance Program (LOMAP) Lending Library is a service to WSBA members. We offer the
short-term loan of
books on the business management
aspects of your
law office. How
does it work? You
can view available
titles at www.wsba.org/resources-and-services/lomap/lending-library. Books
may be borrowed by any WSBA member for up to two weeks. LOMAP requires your WSBA ID and a valid Visa
or MasterCard number to guarantee
the book’s return to the program. If you
live outside of the Seattle area, books
can be mailed to you; you will be responsible for return postage. For walk-in members, we recommend calling
first to check availability of requested
titles. To arrange for a book loan or to
check availability, contact Peter Roberts at email@example.com.
Advisory opinions are issued by the
WSBA to assist members in interpreting their ethical obligations in specific
circumstances. The opinions are the
result of study and analysis in response
to requests from WSBA members. For
assistance, call the Ethics Line at 206-
727-8284 or 800-945-9722, ext. 8284.
Facing an Ethical Dilemma?
Members facing ethical dilemmas
can talk with WSBA professional
responsibility counsel for informal
guidance on analyzing a situation
involving their own prospective ethical
conduct under the RPCs. All calls
are confidential. Any advice given is
intended for the education of the inquirer
and does not represent an official
position of the WSBA. Every effort is
made to return calls within two business
days. Call the Ethics Line at 206-727-
