Abrahamson & Uiterwyk Offered Law School Scholarship to Promote Diversity
At Abrahamson & Uiterwyk, our attorneys recognize the value of diversity in the legal profession. However, according to research conducted by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, only 11.3% of practicing lawyers identify as Black or African American, Asian, or Hispanic or Latino.
Abrahamson & Uiterwyk wants to encourage more people who identify as minorities to pursue a legal education. Therefore, we were proud to offer a $1,500 scholarship to a deserving law student.
We asked students to submit an essay detailing how they would use their legal education to positively affect their community. Abrahamson & Uiterwyk awarded the winning student $1,500 to put toward their legal education.
