Washington State Bar Association, http://www.wsba.org/ 

This recently redesigned site is an essential resource for members of the Washington State legal community and consumers of legal services. The initial page now displays prominent links for "Services for Lawyers," "Services for the Public," Licensing & Admissions," and Continuing Legal Education."

A wide range of WSBA information is available, including the text of articles, columns, and features from the Washington State Bar News (back to September 1997), the Lawyer Database (a searchable database complete with address, phone, fax, email, bar number, and status information), section and committee descriptions, and formal and informal ethics opinions and disciplinary notices.

More than a dozen Consumer Information Pamphlets are available for members of the public. Topics include bankruptcy, criminal law, divorce, elder law, probate, real estate, and trusts. Information on the Bar's public service programs is highlighted.

3Ls will be interested in the admissions and licensing section, which includes a frequently-asked questions document and bar exam results.

Get familiar with this well-organized, content-rich site!
