Co-Managing Partner, Munger, Tolles & Olson LLP
Sandra Seville-Jones joined Munger, Tolles & Olson in 1993 and became the firm’s second female managing partner in the last decade in 2009. A frequent speaker on women in the law, she is also a former Co-Chair of the Los Angeles Metropolitan Debate Commission.
MTO has won several awards for its inclusion of women, due in part to a robust women’s initiative that provides events, a library of resources specifically for women lawyers, and strong work-life policies. In 2016, 21 percent of the firm’s lawyers were minorities and about 50 percent of lawyers promoted to partner were women. MTO also has a Fellows Program for diverse law students and supports pipeline initiatives like For People of Color, Inc. and the Urban Debate League.
