Our opening keynote will be Washington Supreme Court Justice Mary Yu, who will speak on the topic of How the Pandemic and the Call for Racial Justice Has Impacted the Practice of Law in State of Washington.” Justice Yu will share some comments how courts in Washington State responded to the pandemic and the calls for racial justice after the murder of George Floyd. Participants are encouraged to read the letter the supreme court sent out to the legal community and peruse the webpage with the court’s COVID orders.  

Following the keynote speech, Rachel Platin, the IPS Huneke Fellow, will share her experience in law school during the pandemic.  

After a short business meeting and an introduction of the new Executive Committee members, we will have an open discussion and a social hour. Please share your thoughts and ideas on how to survive during this unprecedented time and let us know how you are doing! 

Screenshots taken at this event may be later published in online or print materials (including the IPS’s website, The Global Gavel) reporting or promoting this or other WSBA events. If you do not wish your image in a screenshot to be reused in these ways, you may opt out by saying so in the event Chat box or simply disable your video.

Due to the surge of the Delta variant of COVID-19, we will conduct the IPS Mentorship Program later this year or early 2022. Stay tuned for more information!

We look forward to seeing you!
