UW 1L Mock Trial

Congratulations to all the competitors of the UW 1L Mock Trial! The judges were impressed by all the law students. A big thank you goes out to everyone who volunteered as a judge. We had a blast sponsoring it for the first time and can't wait to do it again.

Check out one of the winning groups on our YLD facebook page.


YLD Diaper Drive

Help the YLD donate 10,000 diapers to King County Families in need this holiday season!

Did you know?

  • 1 in 3 American moms struggle with diaper needs.  
  • Families can't send their babies to daycare without a supply of diapers.
  • Diapers cost families over $100 a month, if you can't buy in bulk.
  • Food stamps and WIC do not help with diapers.

How to help:

  • Drop off a package of diapers or money at our office or any YLD event between now and January 1st. 
  • Let us go shopping for you - donate money through our YouCaring page.
  • Hold a diaper drive at your office - we have marketing materials for you!
  • Hint: Costco has boxes of size 3 diapers (the most needed size) for under $40.

Diapers will be donated to Mary's Place and the Baby Boutique - both organizations provide services to homeless women and their children and families in crisis.

For more information email Christine Dreps, KCBA Member Services Senior Manager, at chrisd@kcba.org or call (206) 267-7003.

Public Speaking for Attorneys:
Credible Verbal and Nonverbal Communication in the Courtroom

Presented By: Alexis Knutson, Tsongas Litigation Consulting

Thursday, December 17, 2015 | 4:00 - 5:00 pm
KCBA, 1200 5th Ave., Suite 700, Seattle

This CLE presentation will focus on using effective communication skills in the courtroom. A speaker’s credibility is derived from the verbal and nonverbal cues presented in the speech. The verbal cues are the words the speaker chooses to use, and the nonverbal cues are how you look and sound when you speak. An important step in powerful speech delivery is knowing which cues lower and which cues enhance your credibility. 

This FREE program will be webcast.
