PSALA and NWLIA present: 
“What do Professionalism, Civility, & Retention have to do with Diversity & Inclusion and the Future of the Legal Profession?”

Thursday, July 16, 2015
8:00 am — 11:30 am

Perkins Coie
(CLE Pending)

Keynote Speaker:
Sandra S. Yamate
Chief Executive Officer,
The Institute for Inclusion in the Legal Profession

Past efforts to increase diversity in the legal profession have been sincere but not inclusive enough…not ambitious enough…not robust enough. The Institute for Inclusion in the Legal Profession is driving real progress through comprehensive outreach and original programming to replace barriers with bridges between legal, judicial, professional, educational, and governmental institutes. Market Intervention is Necessary for Real Change. Our work begins now, with a simple goal: Fewer walls, more doors. Please join Sandra Yamate, Esq. and other leaders in the legal community for a presentation and interactive discussion aimed at reducing walls and opening doors.

More details will follow in a formal invitation in the next few weeks.

Registration is now open for the AALL Government Relations Office next online advocacy training, “Progress Report: UELMA Advocacy in 2015 and Beyond” on May 13 at 12:00 pm ET.   Register at

This training is complimentary for AALL and chapter members.

“Progress Report: UELMA Advocacy in 2015 and Beyond”
Wednesday May 13, 2015
12:00 – 12:30 pm ET

Since its approval by the Uniform Law Commission (ULC) in July 2011, the Uniform Electronic Legal Material Act (UELMA) has been introduced in 20 legislatures and become law in 12 states, thanks in large part to the dedicated advocacy of AALL members and chapters. Join AALL’s Government Relations Office as we assess progress made on UELMA and opportunities for the future. In this 30 minute presentation, we’ll cover both common advocacy challenges and strategies for success – from grabbing the attention of busy legislators and answering complex questions about technology and costs to identifying allies and building influential coalitions. You’ll learn more about the process of shepherding UELMA through the legislative process and identify opportunities for you to help enact UELMA in your state!

Registration is required and will close 24 hours in advance of the training. Participants will receive a confirmation email with link to the webinar software on May 12. Please email Elizabeth Holland at with any questions.

The Northwest Legal Industry Alliance invites you to join us for a networking reception and presentation by Dan Lear entitled:

Legal Professionals: IBM’s Watson is coming for your job.  Are you ready?

Wednesday, March 11, 2015

4:00 – 6:00 pm

Davis Wright Tremaine LLP

1201 Third Avenue, Suite 2200

Seattle, Washington 98101


Wine, beer and appetizers will be served.

The cost to attend is $20 per person and pre-registration is required.

About the presentation:

In 2011 IBM’s Watson soundly defeated two very successful former champions of the quiz-show Jeopardy! It was a benchmark if not for the artificial intelligence itself then certainly for AI in the public consciousness. But Watson is not stopping there; in fact, “he’s” just getting started. Among the first industries that Watson is tackling is law, with help from legal technology innovators Dan Katz and Paul Lippe. An engineer from IBM has even built a “personal Watson” for pro se litigation. If IBM can teach Watson to win Jeopardy, you can bet they can teach it file briefs, organize and review contracts, and perform routine, and maybe even more complex, legal tasks. And IBM is not the only one working on these problems. Hundreds of legal technology startups and millions of venture capital dollars are bringing an lodging an innovative market-disrupting assault on the monolith that has been the legal industry (including challenging regulation of lawyers).
