George Washington University Law School Scholarships

Top law firms are committed to contributing to a profession that embraces diversity and equal opportunity. They recognize that top recruits of diverse races, national origins and sexual orientation, men and women, are attracted to employers that hire from a diverse pool of candidates and provide an environment of real teamwork and equal opportunity. Additionally, it’s clear that clients and potential clients appreciate and increasingly expect law firms to provide outstanding staffing on their matters that reflect the breadth and diversity of their own organizations and that can work effectively as a team with each other and with the client’s personnel. While the entire legal field has far to go in improving diversity within the profession, some top law firms are making a concerted effort to create a culture that values individuality and differences among people. They believe that having a diverse population of lawyers and staff enables them to achieve greater success as a law firm. These firms also understand that improving diversity in the legal profession requires more than just hiring and promoting diverse attorneys within their firm. It also requires a sustained commitment to increase the pipeline of diverse students who earn strong grades in law school and are, therefore, positioned to compete for the most sought-after jobs and become the profession's next generation of leaders and decision-makers.
