Strengthening the Lawyers of Tomorrow...Today
The Nexsen Pruet Diversity Scholarship Program illustrates the firm’s commitment to diversity inside our walls and in the legal profession as a whole. We have an obligation to promote diversity by providing more and better opportunities to deserving law school students.
In 2008, Nexsen Pruet launched the Nexsen Pruet Diversity Scholarship Program. The scholarship is awarded to two underrepresented or diverse law students who are enrolled at an ABA accredited law school. The program recipients receive a $5,000 scholarship and a paid summer associate position. Since the inception of the scholarship program, we have awarded 42 scholarships at a total investment of $130,000.
These scholarships go to underrepresented or diverse law students planning careers in South or North Carolina and our hope is to:
- Support diversity within our firm and the bar;
- Enhance educational opportunities for talented minorities in the field of law; and
- Inform underrepresented or diverse law students of opportunities for private practice in the Carolinas.
