The 28th annual Northwest Minority Job Fair
Saturday, August 23rd, 2014.

The Washington State Attorney General’s Office is proud to host the 28th Annual Northwest Minority Job Fair. Promoting diversity is a core value of the Attorney General’s Office. As the largest public law office in the state, we take our responsibility to provide statewide leadership in this area very seriously.  We know the people of Washington are best served by a legal community that reflects the great diversity of our state.  We continuously strive to recruit and retain a diverse workforce, and we believe that each of the firms participating in the NWMJF is committed to doing the same.

The Northwest Minority Job Fair, sponsored and funded by a consortium of legal sector employers, is an excellent place to begin.  For 28 years, this event has brought together private and public law firms committed to promoting diversity by providing a unique opportunity for employers, law students and lawyers to match legal talent with needs.

Last year’s Northwest Minority Job Fair brought together approximately 150 students and 27 law firms/agencies, including the Attorney General’s Office.   This year’s Fair will be held Saturday, August 23, 2014 at the Office of the Attorney General, 800 Fifth Avenue in Seattle.

Registration is free for students and all expenses are paid by the participating employers. Part of the registration fee provides scholarships for minority students.

The Attorney General’s Office is proud to be among the many dedicated law firms in Washington that have supported and hosted this event throughout its 28-year history, including: Lane Powell, Davis Wright Tremaine, KL Gates, Perkins Coie, Stoel Rives, Dorsey & Whitney and Williams Kastner.

We believe the 2014 Northwest Minority Job Fair will play a vital role in our state’s efforts to promote and increase diversity in our legal community.

I look forward to seeing you in August!

Bob Ferguson, Attorney General
