2012 Diversity Scholarship Program
Winston & Strawn LLP is offering three (3) scholarships to diverse law school students who join the 2012 summer program in one of our domestic offices following the conclusion of their second year of law school.

- Demonstrated leadership abilities and interpersonal skills
