Every year, DWT hosts and co-sponsors (with Microsoft) a speed-networking event for diverse students from the University of Washington Law School. The annual event, created three years ago by the school’s Asian / Pacific American Law Students Association, attracted nearly 50 diverse students, primarily 1Ls, who came for five-minute meet-ups with a host of attorneys and judges, plus a reception.

Among the stellar mentors participating in the 2012 event were the Honorable Ricardo Martinez of U.S. District Court for the Western District of Washington and retired state Supreme Court Justice Bobbe Bridge. “I thought it was great,” said Kraig L. Marini Baker, chair of DWT’s technology, e-business & digital media practice, and one of four attorneys from the firm who served as mentors. “It was a chance for the students to ask what we do every day and what our priorities are. Law school is too often divorced from legal practice. This is the kind of thing I wish I’d gotten to do as a student.”
