CLEs & Calendar

A core value of Seattle Select Attorneys is continuous improvement. One way we help lawyers improve is by offering continuing legal education seminars on a variety of topics by a variety of speakers.  Past topics include: estate planning basics, residential real estate, a lawyer's duty to provide pro bono representation, securities law, immigration, and ethics for solo and small firm attorneys. Our continuing legal education seminars are accredited through the Washington State Bar Association.

During most of the year, we meet on the fourth Tuesday of the month at 8:30 am.  In addition to networking, these meetings provide an opportunity to learn at quality, low-cost continuing legal education programs. In addition to specific practice areas, we offer seminars on ethics, professional responsibility, legal research tools, law office management, and marketing professional services.
