Washington State Bar Association LAMP Section works with various organizations throughout the state and nation to promote and support legal assistance to Veterans and active-duty military, reserve, guard members and their families. In the fall 2010, the LAMP Section donated funds to support the work of the Northwest Justice Projects Veterans Pro-Bono attorney, Lauren Peach (recipient of the Justice AmeriCorps Veterans Fellowship).

LAMP has been working to extend outreach efforts to non-attorneys who work and provide legal services to military personnel and veterans. This effort has resulted in the changing of the section’s bylaws to allow non-attorneys and law students to become members of the LAMP Section. LAMP also works to involve law students by coordinating outreach to state law schools.
