Why the Access to Justice Conference is Important and Why You Need to Be There

The Access to Justice (ATJ) Conference is a bi-annual event, being held this year in Yakima on June 2-4.

Planning for this year’s Conference is well underway and there is sure to be something for everyone, whether you practice in the civil or criminal field, or whether you are a community partner or member of the bench. Register Now

This year, we will feature more opportunities for big picture discussions across disciplines, while also providing space for networking and resource development.  No Conference would be complete without social activities and to that end we will enjoy a reception on Friday evening and libations at a local winery on Saturday evening.

Regardless of where you are in your legal career, and given the shifting sands upon which we all appear to be standing, attendance at this year’s ATJ Conference is more vital than ever. Indeed the Conference’s theme, “Racing to Justice: Community Lawyering to Bend the Arc,” affirms that this is not a time for despair, but for bold life-affirming action that will bring everyone to a place of equity and fairness. We look forward to your attendance at the Conference as together we build a movement where justice for all becomes a reality.  For more information, please contact Diana Singleton, ATJ Board Manager, at: dianas@wsba.org
