WSBA President Cor ner
THE RULE OF LAW.
THE ROLE OF WSBA.
NWLawyer | OCT 2017 6
Over the door to the United States Supreme Court hangs the engraved phrase, “EQUAL JUSTICE UNDER LAW.” For many Americans (and others), that phrase is a manifestation of an abiding faith we share in the “Rule of Law.” When folks began to ask me why I took on leadership duties with the Washington State Bar Association (WSBA), I initially found
it hard to articulate the underlying reason(s). I now know that it is my own faith
in the Rule of Law that compelled me to step up and that motivates me to work on
behalf of the WSBA, its members, and the public…and that motivation is growing.
