Latham & Watkins Diversity Scholars Program
Latham & Watkins’ Diversity Scholars Program awards six law students at ABA-accredited law schools a $10,000 non-renewable scholarship for use during their second year of law school. Previous recipients of the scholarships have told us that the program not only defrays the cost of a law school education, but also signals the importance of diversity to the firm and is a strong indicator of Latham's open-minded and forward-thinking culture.
Candidates are asked to submit an application form, personal statement, resume and official or unofficial law school transcript by July 20, 2012. Recipients will be announced in late summer 2012. The process is open to all law students at ABA-accredited law schools who have completed their first year of a full-time JD program by the application deadline. The scholarships are not contingent upon receiving or accepting an offer of employment at Latham.
