Please provide a brief description of the program

Legal Employers Advancing Diversity in Washington (“LEAD-WA”) is a Washington non-profit organization established to increase the number of traditionally underrepresented, minority and/or diverse lawyers practicing in the Washington legal community. LEAD-WA, through its participating employers, provides summer associate positions to diverse first-year law students from Washington’s three law schools: Gonzaga University School of Law, Seattle University School of Law, and the University of Washington School of Law. The LEAD-WA Diversity Fellowship Program was established by the Puget Sound Area Minority Fellowship Program (“PSAMFP”) Board, to continue to provide legal opportunities and experience for traditionally underrepresented, minority and/or diverse law students to work in a variety of law firm or corporate law environments, with the goal of growing diversity representation in the legal profession. Students who are selected to participate as Fellows in this highly competitive program will be chosen to serve as a summer associate with one of LEAD-WA’s participating employers. Applicants must be students in good standing at Gonzaga University School of Law, Seattle University School of Law, or the University of Washington School of Law, and have legal authorization to work in the United States.
