What is the WLPM?

As one of the most comprehensive Washington State legal reference sets, the Washington Lawyers Practice Manual is updated annually and designed to provide practitioners statewide with the most current information available. Providing instant access to 25 of the most frequently used areas of Washington, the 2016 publication features edits to over three quarters of the chapters. Extensive updates in Evidence, Claims and Judgments, Tax Practice, Real Property, Criminal, Employment Discrimination, Land Use and Environmental Law and a complete revision of the Law Office Management chapter.


  • Over 1,000 Forms
  • Practice Tips & Checklists
  • Bibliographies
  • Annual Updates
  • Useful statewide, covering 25 areas of Washington State Law
  • Available as an 8-volume print set or as a single CD ROM*
  • CD version includes a searchable, comprehensive Table of Contents: Search all TOCs at once, rather than one chapter at a time
  • Individual chapters also available on CD

*The CD version of the Washington Lawyers Practice Manual has interactive forms, can be key-word searched, and each table of contents heading is electronically linked to the corresponding section of the text. The CD not only includes the text of each chapter as a PDF file, but provides the forms in Word as well, making them easier to adapt for your own use!

Save Valuable Time and Client Resources

Large firms use our eight-volume print edition of the Washington Lawyers Practice Manual to support the research of out-of-state summer interns. The full CD-ROM edition* also allows solo practitioners and smaller law firms to reduce library research time. No matter what size your practice, the Washington Lawyers Practice Manual allows you to save time and pass on valuable savings on to clients. A great resource for non-attorney professionals and paralegals, too!

Your Purchase Supports KCBA’s Pro Bono Programs

Proceeds from the Washington Lawyers Practice Manual help support our Pro Bono Services programs including the Neighborhood Legal Clinics program, ensuring our community’s continued access to the justice system at absolutely no cost. Since 1974, the King County Bar Association’s Neighborhood Legal Clinics have offered free legal advice and consultation to King County residents. Last year, over 900 volunteer attorneys and assistants served nearly 8,000 clients at 34 clinics countywide

Yearly Updates for Subscribers

The Washington Lawyers Practice Manual is a subscription service. With the purchase of a complete print or CD edition, you will automatically be subscribed to receive annual updates to ensure your Washington Lawyers Practice Manual always reflects the most up-to-date information. Given the number of changes to the Washington Lawyers Practice Manual every year, our members want to know that their reference material represents current law. Each year prior to the release of the annual update, you will receive correspondence from KCBA to confirm your subscription and the impending delivery of your updated information. You may cancel your subscription at any time.
