Under the joint sponsorship of the Washington State Bar Association, the State Judicial Council, the Seattle Bar Association and the University of Washington Law School, arrangement are being made for a one-day legal institute to be held at the Law School in Seattle early in the year 1939. The purpose of the institute will be to present for discussion by the bench and bar of the state the recent recommendations of the Section of Judicial Administration of the American Bar Association in so far as they are applicable to local conditions. Notably, the institute will concern itself with the recommendations for pre-trial procedure and for improvements in the Law of Evidence, although it is hoped that time will also permit the inclusion in the program of some of the other recommendations dealing with trial practice, selection of jurors, appellate practice and administrative agencies and tribunals. A special section of bankruptcy is under consideration.
