about the benefits of being a WLS member.
ashington Lawyers for Sustainability is working to move Washington’s economy, our communities, and the way we treat our environment in more sustainable directions.
We’re a group of lawyers, law professionals and citizens whose mission is to find effective ways to use our professional skills and influence to promote sustainability through education, counseling, and advocacy.
Lawyers are uniquely placed to make connections that others do not have the vantage points to see. And, most importantly, we are uniquely licensed to work with the rules that govern our society. These are valuable attributes to bring to bear on the complex of issues that fall under the sustainability heading, and should not be wasted.
– David Frankel, WLS President
