Washington Lawyers for Sustainability welcomes three categories of members:
- Lawyers: Those who have been admitted to the bar of any state;
- Law Students: Students either currently enrolled in an ABA-accredited law school or
- Recent graduates who have not yet been admitted to the bar; and Legal and Sustainability Community: Non-lawyers who are interested in sustainability issues at the nexus of law and policy.
Sustainability Community Building, Leadership, and Networking Opportunities WLS is an all-volunteer organization that encourages participation in the committees that plan and run our programs and other activities. WLS provides members with opportunities to engage with and build the sustainability community and to network through participating in committee activities. Committees work on a variety of issues including energy policy, land use, toxics control, and WLS administration such as event planning, newsletter and article editing, and website maintenance.
Become a sustainability leader! For more information about WLS committees and to volunteer, email firstname.lastname@example.org

“I joined WLS because I wanted to learn more about what my community was doing in terms of sustainability and meet other people who have similar interests. I’ve learned amazing skills from being able to network with people and bring ideas to the table.”
– Stephanie Erickson, third year UW law student
