Event Date
Class Level
1L


A deep commitment to diversity and inclusion is a core value at Arnold & Porter. As part of the our commitment to promoting diversity and inclusion in the legal profession, we award $10,000 scholarships to highly qualified first-year students. Each scholarship is paid directly to a recipient' law school to help finance tuition costs for the second academic year.

Criteria

Qualified applicants are currently enrolled, first-year law students at ABA-accredited law schools who:

• Contribute to the diverse background of a law school\'s student body

• Demonstrate strong academic achievement

• Demonstrate an interest in promoting diversity and inclusion in the legal profession

While the Firm may also take into account a student' need for financial assistance, such need is not required.

Applicants must submit a current resume, official law school transcript, and a personal statement (limited to 500 words) that describes the role of diversity in their personal background; their views on the intersections of diversity, inclusion, and equity; or how they have demonstrated a commitment to promoting diversity and inclusion in the legal profession.

An applicant may also submit a separate statement (limited to 500 words) demonstrating a financial need for a scholarship, but such statement is not required because need is not an official criterion for this merit-based award.
