The United States District Court for the Western District of Washington and the King County Bar Association teamed up to host a Career Day for high school students who are members of The Future of the Law Institute.  The institute, an affiliate of the King County Bar Foundation, promotes ethnic diversity in the legal profession by encouraging minority and economically disadvantaged high school students to pursue higher education in the law.

Participating in the event held February 13, 2013, at the district court in Seattle were District Judges Richard A. Jones and Ricardo S. Martinez, Assistant U.S. Attorney Nick Brown and Assistant Federal Defender Corey Endo, along with various court staff and a representative of the U.S. Marshals Service.  Students were able to gain first hand information about the types of careers available in the judiciary.
