JMMP is a partnership of several minority bar associations, hosted by SABAW, which pairs mentor lawyers of all backgrounds (including allies) with mentee law students and new lawyers (of any and all historically underrepresented groups) for a year-long program. JMMP is generously sponsored by The Opportunity and Progress Council, Foster Garvey’s diversity, equity, and inclusion initiative.
