Back to School!

In life, and particularly, in the attorney life, you never know enough, and you are never done learning. Fortunately, the Washington State Bar makes sure that attorneys never stop learning, by requiring that attorneys obtain 45 credits of ongoing education each reporting period, which is every three years. Overall, most conferences are very good, and they deal with current, relevant issues that help keep attorneys on top of things.  My favorite conferences are the ones where I leave feeling rejuvenated, excited, and ready to take on new and difficult challenges.  It can be encouraging to share stories, and experiences, with other attorneys that are fighting through the same issues that you are fighting with.

The Washington State Association for Justice puts on absolutely great conferences, many of which are focused directly on the most important issues facing personal injury attorneys. Tomorrow, I will attend a conference focused on trial skills that relate to "winning in the beginning," or in other words, starting a case out right so that you win it in the end.  Not a bad way to spend a Halloween!

  1. Hi! Thank you for sharing your thoughts about personal injury lawyer in your area. I am glad to stop by your site and know more about personal injury lawyer. Keep it up! This is a good read. You have such an interesting and informative page. I will be looking forward to visit your page again and for your other posts as well.
    In order to practice law in the United States, a personal injury lawyer must pass a written bar examination and, in some cases, a written ethics examination. Bar examinations vary on a state-to-state basis. However, most states require applicants to have completed a four-year college degree and a law degree from an accredited law school (California is one notable exception, but the non-accredited law school must meet certain requirements.)
    Personal injury can often be life-impacting a highly emotional situation for both the victim and the person held responsible. An experienced personal injury lawyer understands the sensitivity of such situations and can help to alleviate the mental stress of dealing with such a case.
