The Washington Supreme Court has decided to end its Limited Licensed Legal Technician (LLLT) program. The program allowed for non-lawyers to perform legal duties in the area of family law. LLLTs could “consult with and advise clients, complete and file necessary court documents, assist pro se clients at certain types of hearings, and advise and participate in mediation, arbitration, and settlement conferences.”

People currently in training to become LLLTs can continue and any that complete their LLLT by July 31, 2021 will be licensed.
