Why be a member of the Spokane County Bar Association?
The Spokane County Bar Association offers:
Continuing Legal Education seminars specifically designed to fit the needs of the local legal community. Our CLEs are presented at low rates and at cheaper rates than non-members. We often videotape our seminars for rental at a later time.
Calendar Call Newsletter - Every member of the SCBA receives a copy of the digital version via e-mail of Calendar Call , our twice monthly newsletter. The Calendar Call contains CLE notices, meeting notices and announcements, employment opportunities, advertisements, federal, state and county court information and other important data that is vital to the practice of law.
Membership Directory - A searchable online SCBA pictorial lawyer directory for members, which lists their contact information.
Online Access to Spokane County Court Documents - The Spokane County Bar Association has worked toward the goal of having Spokane County Superior Court documents available online. For information on accessing court records online, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Broadcast E-mail Network - Members receive broadcast e-mail notices of important events.
Section Affiliation & Networking - Being a member promotes camaraderie, and fellowship in the legal profession. SCBA members are invited to participate in "sections" of the Bar. Sections are focus groups that meet monthly to discuss issues relative to the specific area of law or legal profession. Currently, the Spokane County Bar Association has a Young Lawyers Division, ADR Section, Diversity Section, a Family Law Section, Indian Law Section, LGBTA Section and a Solo & Small Practice Section.
The SCBA also sponsors social events which benefits the health and well being of the Bar as a whole.
Monthly Bar Luncheons are offered featuring keynote speakers, members of the judiciary or community leaders.
The Annual Professionalism Dinner honors a member of the legal community who exhibits the highest standards of ethics and professionalism and honors members of bar who have been practicing for 50 years.
The Annual Golf Tournament, hosted in June, is a particular favorite of the many duffers that are members of the Bar.
The Volunteer Lawyer Program administers the Justice Run. The Volunteer Lawyers Program relies heavily on the many volunteers who help coordinate this event. The VLP Fun Run Committee puts in a lot of hours to make the "run" a success.
The improved Annual Holiday Party and VLP Silent Auction is a favorite of the local membership. The party provides the membership an opportunity to meet long time friends and to spread some good cheer. The silent auction is a successful fundraiser for the Volunteer Lawyers Program. Auction items are excellent last-minute Christmas gifts for a loved one, or perhaps, for yourself.
