Become a Legal Technician
Legal technicians are trained and licensed to offer legal advice and services to clients in family law matters without the financial investment of a traditional law degree. This flexible legal license allows legal technicians to work independently, in groups with other LLLTs, or as part of a traditional law firm. It's a great fit for those who love the law and want to help people but are unsure about going to law school. It is also a great fit for experienced paralegals who would like to work independently or start their own business as a LLLT. Legal technicians are the only legal professionals other than lawyers who are licensed to give legal advice and own law firms.
The Washington Supreme Court directed the WSBA to develop and administer the LLLT license as part of the effort to make legal services more available for people with low or moderate incomes. Becoming a legal technician is a great way to be a part of a pioneering effort to make legal services available to everyone.
