Our 1L Diversity Scholarship Program is one significant way to help us advance diversity in the legal profession. We are offering six scholarships in the following offices in 2021: New York (1), Portland (1), San Francisco (1- Energy Focus), Seattle (1), and Washington, D.C. (1). As a 1L Diversity Scholarship recipient, you will receive a paid position in our Summer Associate Program and $15,000 for your second year tuition and expenses. Please note that our San Francisco scholarship will be awarded to a candidate with either some experience or serious interest in Energy law.
Our Diversity Scholarships are open to all first-year law students of diverse backgrounds, who:
- Demonstrate high academic achievements in both undergraduate school and the first year of law school;
- Are committed to civic involvement that promotes diversity and will continue that commitment upon entering the legal profession; and
- Are committed to practicing in the Pacific Northwest after law school (for the Seattle, Portland and Los Angeles offices only)
Although demonstrated need may be taken into account, applicants need not disclose their financial circumstances.
