We are proud to announce the successful launch of the Joint Minority Mentorship Program (JMMP) at our Seattle office, where we had the privilege of hosting over 100 participants on Wednesday night. 

Since 2019, JMMP has empowered hundreds of law students by fostering valuable connections with experienced mentors. Together, we’re building a more inclusive legal profession, one relationship at a time.

JMMP is a groundbreaking collaboration between 16 of the major Washington bar associations, through which the state’s minority bar associations, alongside the King County Bar Association, Washington State Bar Association and the Federal Bar Association, all host an annual mentorship program for law students and new lawyers in Washington state.

Beginning in 2024, law students and new lawyer mentees who complete its one-year mentorship program will be named “Stone Scholars” in honor of  Rafael Stone's 50-plus years of steadfast commitment to championing access to opportunity throughout the legal profession nationally, especially in Washington state. 

We were honored to host this historic event to welcome the first class of Stone Scholars and continue our support of JMMP and these vital mentoring relationships. Our commitment to supporting JMMP and nurturing these pivotal mentoring connections remains unwavering as we continue to champion diversity, equity and inclusion within the legal landscape.
