GR 12.1 - Washington State Bar Association: PurposesComments for GR 12.1 must be received no later than April 30, 2013.
RULES OF GENERAL APPLICATION (GR)
Submitted by the Board of Governors of the Washington State Bar Association
GR 12.1 describes the purposes and authorized activities of the Washington State Bar Association (WSBA). GR 12.1(b) enumerates the specific activities that are authorized for the WSBA, and GR 12.1(b)(22) relates to the collection of funds by the WSBA for the effective and efficient discharge of its mission, purposes and activities. Because the purposes and activities of the WSBA are authorized by the Court, and the WSBA sets licensing and other fees in order to carry out those authorized purposes and activities, the Court has the inherent authority to determine whether license fees set by the WSBA are reasonable to accomplish its functions.
The suggested amendment to GR 12.1(b)(22) would clearly state the authority that the WSBA and the Court have with respect to the setting, collecting, and handling of license fees.
