For the Public


Welcome to the area of our website for the public. Here you will find information about KCBA programs of particular interest to non-attorneys.  From ratings of judicial candidates to descriptions of our free legal service programs for those with limited financial resources, an important part of our mission serves not just lawyers but the general public as well.

Judicial Elections

KCBA publishes ratings for any candidate who has filed election paperwork with the state Public Disclosure Commission or the King County Elections Department, provided we have issued a rating. KCBA is committed to releasing ratings in every contested judicial election that appears on the King County ballot, as well as for any candidate who requests a rating.
