In tribute to Paul D. White, the firm’s first minority partner and a pioneer for minorities in the legal profession, a scholarship was created to provide minority law students with valuable experience early in their careers. The scholarship is awarded annually to 1L or 2LE law students of Black or African American, Hispanic or Latino, Native Hawaiian or Pacific Islander, Asian, American Indian, or Alaska Native descent, as the firm recognizes the importance and value of having students with various experiences, backgrounds, and perspectives work at the firm. The scholarship includes a paid summer 2019 clerkship and a cash award.
The application is available on Symplicity (search Job # 18207) and applications are due on January 9, 2019. If you are interested in applying for this scholarship, please see the scholarship checklist and timeline here, and the bio of Paul D. White here. Feel free to make an appointment with Samantha Zandman (firstname.lastname@example.org) or another CDO counselor for assistance with your application materials.
