Due 7/15: Latham & Watkins LLP 2L Diversity Scholars Program

Latham & Watkins LLP  is again pleased to announce the acceptance of applications for its 2L Diversity Scholars Program, which awards select second-year law students at ABA-accredited law schools a $10,000 nonrenewable scholarship and an offer of summer employment (the scholarship is contingent upon acceptance of this offer). We are proud to have awarded more than $500,000 in scholarships over the past decade.
Factors considered in choosing our 2L Diversity Scholars include motivation for pursuing a legal career, academic and leadership achievements, life experiences and challenges, interest in joining Latham, and a commitment to diversity and inclusion at the firm. Candidates are asked to submit an application form, personal statement, resume, and law school transcript by July 15, 2016. The application process is open to all rising second-year law students who have completed their first year of a full-time JD program at an ABA-accredited law school (class of 2018).  Finalists will be interviewed in late summer and the 2L Diversity Scholars will be publicly announced in the fall.

Additional information about the program, including the application form, can be found here.
