Finnegan Diversity Scholarship

Application Period: December 1, 2015 - January 25, 2016

Deadline: January 25, 2016


Students currently completing their first year are invited to apply. Scholarship recipients must be enrolled in an ABA-accredited law school and must meet Finnegan’s hiring criteria (a degree in life sciences, engineering, or computer science, or substantial prior trademark experience), and must contribute to enhancing diversity.  We define diversity broadly.  Successful applicants have included members of racial, ethnic, disabled, and sexual orientation groups that have been historically underrepresented in the legal profession.

Students must submit an application, resume, official or unofficial transcripts (law school grades should be forwarded once received), and a 1-2 page personal statement.  The personal statement should include a description of how the applicant will contribute to Finnegan’s practice and diversity mission.  Click here  for application form.

Award: The diversity scholarship award is $15,000 and a paid 2016 summer position in one of the firm’s domestic offices.
