Diversity Sponsorships, Organizations and Events

Vedder Price actively sponsors or is involved in a wide variety of diverse bar and law student affinity organizations, including committing attorney time to mentor diverse law students and their student organizations. We also provide financial support to many such organizations through their fund-raising and related efforts.

In addition, many Vedder Price attorneys contribute to, participate in and support diversity and women’s scholarships and other funds, serve as tutors and career mentors, and support other community-based programs.
