Farella Braun + Martel LLP strives to cultivate an inclusive culture within our firm and is committed to diversifying the legal profession through the hiring of law students and attorneys from diverse backgrounds and experiences. Since 2001, Farella’s 1L Diversity Scholarship Program has awarded $360,000 in scholarship funds to more than 65 diverse first-year law students with the goal of assisting them in their pursuit of a legal career.
As part of our continued commitment, Farella will award a total of $30,000 in scholarship grants in 2017 to be divided equally among three outstanding first-year law students.
Scholarship applicants must be current first-year students with full- or part-time class loads attending one of the following law schools: University of California, Berkeley, School of Law; University of California Davis School of Law; University of California, Hastings College of the Law; Santa Clara University School of Law; Stanford Law School; or University of San Francisco School of Law.
The scholarship program is open to law students of underrepresented groups whose background or personal experience would contribute to the diversity of the legal profession.
Scholarship recipients will be chosen based upon a combination of merit and financial need.
Preference will be given to applicants who demonstrate a commitment to working and living in the Bay Area.
Please join us for our 17th Annual 1L Diversity Scholarship Program Kick-Off Party. Come meet our lawyers, previous scholarship recipients, and fellow 1Ls for a fun evening to help kick-off our scholarship program year.
