We SERVe AS A VOICE OF LGBT LAWYERS AND OTHER LEGAL PROFESSIONALS IN THE STATE OF WASHINGTON ON ISSUES RELATING TO DIVERSITY AND EQUALITY IN THE LEGAL PROFESSION, IN THE COURTS, AND UNDER THE LAW.
Supporting our Trans Community
Read the message from the QLaw President responding to recent attacks on the trans community.
Thanks to the work of many community members and organizations in Washington, including the QLaw Association's own President Elect Dana Savage, Washington's insurance commissioner has adopted a rule to improve access to gender-affirming healthcare in Washington state via Washington's Gender Affirming Treatment Act. In the words of our insurance commissioner, "gender-affirming treatment saves lives." The QLaw Association is proud to have been a part of this legislation. For more information, see the Office of the Insurance Commissioner's press release here.
OuR mentorship program
One of the primary functions of QLaw is to facilitate mentoring relationships within the LGBT legal community.
The Law Student Outreach Committee welcomes applications from law students and attorneys in their first few years of practice for the QLaw Mentorship Program.
QLAW's Judicial Evaluations committee
The QLaw Judicial Evaluation Committee exists to ensure that judicial candidates are aware of and consider the issues important to the LGBT community.
We are a statewide organization and encourage all judicial candidates who desire a rating to contact us to schedule an interview. Our ratings are available to the public to educate voters about the candidates.
