x CLE credits (1 ethics credit) pending

Our CLE will begin with a summary of historical times of great social upheavals in Washington State. The speakers will focus on particular topics from various perspectives to discuss challenges to justice and the Rule of Law during these times. Some of our most stressful times include the 1918 pandemic, WWI, the Great Depression, Wobbly wars, WWII, Washington’s connection to the Nuremberg trials, Internment of the Japanese, 1960s civil rights protests, Vietnam War, Fish Wars, 2020 pandemic and civil rights protests. Sometimes justice prevailed, sometimes it did not. With this historical perspective, how do we prepare for the inevitable challenges to come?

Dealing with a crises during these times takes all three branches of government: the executive branch to act quickly with special powers; the legislature to pass laws needed to address the crisis and response; and finally the judiciary to solve disputes and find the path to justice.
