Diversity matters in today’s business world. Top talent gravitates to work environments where all are welcome. Reaching an increasingly diverse marketplace requires a team with a wide array of backgrounds and perspectives. Corporate clients demand outside legal counsel that shares their commitment to diversity. In principle & practice, Womble Carlyle values & seeks diversity.
Since its establishment in 2004, the Womble Carlyle Scholars Program has awarded more than $600,000 to 75 Scholars. Each year we will award scholarships to two diverse second year law students who present solid academic credentials, personal or professional achievement outside the school environment, and a record of significant community service. This program is designed to increase the participation of underrepresented groups in the bar and at Womble Carlyle.
Specific details of the scholarship are as follows:
