Recipients are in their first year of law school and are selected based on academic and personal accomplishments and financial need. As of 2020, the firm has awarded $470,000 in scholarships to 80 local first-year law students.
The deadline for submitting applications is now open.

- Applicants must be students who identify as a member of a historically underrepresented community, including those identifying as BIPOC, a member of the LGBTQIA+ community, disabled, and/or have a background or experience that would otherwise 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.
