Latham Watkins Diversity Scholarship

Latham & Watkins, a large national law firm, is seeking applications for its annual Latham Diversity Scholars Program, which awards four second-year law students a $10,000 non-renewable scholarship each for use during their third year of law school. For a Diversity Scholars Program overview and application for the 2008 scholarship, please click here.

In 2005, Latham launched their Diversity Scholars Program in the United States, which is designed to increase the number of diverse law students seeking to pursue careers in global law firms such as Latham. Factors considered in choosing the Latham Diversity Scholars include academic and leadership achievements, life experiences and challenges that have shaped values, and a desire to practice at a global law firm and contribute to its diversity objectives. In April 2006, four second-year law students were named as Latham's inaugural Diversity Scholars, and in January 2007, Latham named four additional Diversity Scholars. Each Scholar received a $10,000 non-renewable scholarship for his or her third year of law school. For information about the recent recipients, please click here.
