Practicing Law in a Diverse Legal Community
Choosing the right law school entails the consideration of numerous factors.
One often overlooked factor is how a student might become connected with the
community during law school, thereby laying the foundation for a successful
career once admitted to the bar. While the UW School of Law is one of the nation's
top public law schools, our rich and diverse legal community adds to the likelihood
that students will be active in scholarship and service by forming and maintaining
strong bonds with UW law alumni and leaders in Washington State.
The Minority Bar Associations of Washington have demonstrated a commitment to
diversity by welcoming recent law graduates, placing them in leadership positions
and working together to ensure the legal community is accessible to all. Links to
many of the Washington State minority bar associations are listed below.
