The Latham & Watkins Diversity Scholars Program is designed to increase the number of diverse law students studying at ABA-accredited law schools who want to pursue a career in a global law firm and intend to practice law in the United States. Since the program was launched in 2005, the firm has selected four Diversity Scholars each year to receive $10,000 scholarships for their third year of law school. Factors considered in choosing the 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.
