Latham & Watkins Diversity Scholars Program

Latham & Watkins announces the Latham Diversity Scholars Program, which will award a $10,000 non-renewable scholarship to each of six second-year law students. Factors considered in choosing the Latham Diversity Scholars will include a candidate’s:
  • Ability and commitment to contribute to the diversity objectives of global law firms;
  • Life experiences that have shaped values and that provide a unique perspective, including any obstacles or challenges faced in choosing or pursuing law as a profession;
  • Academic and/or leadership achievements; and
  • Desire to practice in a global law firm environment.
Students will be asked to submit an application form, personal statement, resume and official or unofficial law school transcript by September 27, 2013. Recipients will be announced in early 2014.

This scholarship is not contingent upon receiving or accepting an offer of employment at Latham. Rather, it is open to all law students in the hope that greater diversity among the attorneys at large law firms will benefit the entire profession. The Latham Diversity Scholars Program, among other outreach efforts by Latham’s Diversity Hiring Subcommittee, enhances Latham’s efforts to recruit and hire diverse summer clerks and attorneys.
Please feel free to share the attached overview and application with any individual law students who may be interested in applying. We also encourage you to forward this email to law school administrators overseeing your student life, financial aid, awards and scholarships and minority affairs departments. Applications can also be found here.
