    2015 Diversity Scholar

    “The Vedder Price Diversity Scholarship program is a showcase of the firm’s commitment to diversity and inclusion and has helped me in many aspects. As a recipient, I was also given the opportunity as a 1L summer associate to obtain invaluable legal experience while working with a diverse group of attorneys within the firm. I was truly impressed by the strength of the firm’s commitment not only to its clients but to its diverse employees and attorneys.” 

    The Vedder Price Diversity Scholarship

    In keeping with our commitment to diversity, we established the Vedder Price Diversity Scholarship in 2005. Eligible candidates are first-year law students enrolled at and attending one of the following Illinois law schools: the John Marshall Law School, Chicago-Kent College of Law, DePaul University, Loyola University Chicago, Northwestern University, University of Chicago and University of Illinois.

    This scholarship includes a $5,000 monetary award for law school-related expenses, as well as a guaranteed summer associate position in our Summer Associate Program after the scholarship recipient's first year of law school.

    Applications are accepted during the month of December, only.
