Washington Leadership Institute (WLI)
For: All eligible attorneys (3 to 10 years in practice)
Washington Leadership Institute Seeks 2014-2015 Class of Fellows
Application deadline: September 19, 2014
The Washington Leadership Institute ("WLI") is a collaborative leadership program between the
Washington State Bar Association and the University of Washington School of Law (UW Law).
The program is governed by a volunteer Advisory Board and is administratively staffed by the
Law School. We invite you to consider applying for a 2014-2015 Washington Leadership
Institute (WLI) fellowship.
Starting August 18, 2014, the WLI will begin accepting applications for the incoming 2014-2015
class of Fellows. All required application materials must be received at the UW Law office
no later than September 19, 2014, at 5:00 p.m.
The WLI is an innovative and award winning leadership training program that originated in the
WSBA under the guidance of Bar President Ron Ward. The mission of the WLI is to recruit and
train diverse and underrepresented lawyers for future leadership within the legal and bar community.
Twelve attorneys, in practice for at least three years and not more than ten years, will be
carefully selected for the tenth year of the program. The eight professional development seminars
run from January to August 2015. Upon successful completion, Fellows will earn a significant
number of CLE credits, and the program is provided at no charge to participants.
Please consider applying or referring a colleague. This is an exceptional opportunity for
professional development and for discovering a vehicle to becoming involved with the Bar
and legal community. The deadline for applications and nominations for the 2015 Washington
Leadership Institute must be received at the UW Law office no later than September 19, 2014
at 5:00 p.m. Application and nomination forms and instructions are available to download
at this link.
On behalf of our Advisory Board, we thank you in advance for your interest and support.
