Goals of the Program

  • Help prepare racial and ethnic minority attorneys new to the Oregon legal community for the culture of their particular employment setting and the legal profession generally.
  • Teach survival skills for entering and excelling in the profession as diverse lawyers.
  • Provide a safe space for new attorneys to ask questions, share concerns and discuss unique issues faced by racial and ethnic minority attorneys.
  • Build a support network for racial and ethnic minority attorneys with their peers as they start the practice of law in Oregon.
  • Introduce lawyers to ways to develop leadership skills to cultivate the next generation of racial and ethnic minority leaders.
  • Increase retention of racial and ethnic minority attorneys practicing in Oregon.
  • Create a legal community that better reflects the diversity of the community at large.

Space is limited! Registration is on a first come, first served basis with geographic exceptions for participants outside the Portland-Salem-Metro area.
