Since its founding in 1971, the Washington Council of Lawyers (WCL), a voluntary bar association, has promoted public interest practice of law and pro bono service. Council members represent every sector of the Washington legal community — lawyers and pro bono coordinators from law firms and law schools, lawyers from public interest groups, government agencies and congressional offices, as well as law students and members of law-related professions. 

We are united in our support of social justice and in our conviction that the legal system must be made to serve the needs of the poor and the powerless. The Washington Council of Lawyers seeks to translate this conviction into action and advance social justice in general.
