The Money Barrier: 1st Annual Low Bono Law Conference

Presented by the WSBA Low Bono Section and Seattle University School of Law CLE
The Money Barrier: 1st Annual Low Bono Law Conference

Many people are "priced out" of the justice system, with incomes too high to qualify for legal aid but too low to afford an attorney.  Learn how lawyers can help close this justice gap.

Join the WSBA and Seattle U Law for a full-day conference on how to run a flourishing law practice that includes an intentional commitment to serving clients with limited financial resources.  The program will discuss what low bono is (it's more than just cutting operating costs and discounting your rates or fees), and hear specifically how some lawyers are incorporating low bono principals into their work.

The program will address real-life challenges that arise when clients face financial barriers to full participation in the justice system, and share some specific solutions to addressing those challenges. There will also be an opportunity to begin building meaningful professional relationships through the "Beyond Networking" lunchtime breakout session - LUNCH INCLUDED.

Lawyers from all practice areas and firm sizes are welcome.  Law students and non-lawyers are encouraged to join us as well.
