Strengthening the Lawyers of Tomorrow...Today
In 2008, we launched the Nexsen Pruet Diversity Scholarship Program. The scholarship is awarded to two (2) underrepresented or minority law students who are enrolled at an ABA accredited law school. The program recipients will receive a $5,000 scholarship and a paid summer associate position. Since inception of the scholarship program, we have awarded 42 scholarships at a total investment of $130,000.
These go to underrepresented or minority 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
- Inform underrepresented or minority law students of opportunities for private practice in the Carolinas
