Raleigh, NC – Wyrick Robbins is pleased to announce that it is once again accepting applications for the firm’s Diversity Scholarship. Launched last year, the scholarship for law students is an important part of the firm’s commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion. Wyrick Robbins recognizes that people are its greatest resource, and seeks to recruit, retain and promote a diverse group of talented attorneys so it can build stronger teams and a stronger firm.
“We are proud to offer our Diversity Scholarship for a second year in a row. We remain committed to building a more diverse workplace and to advancing diversity in the legal profession by supporting diverse law students at the outset of their legal careers,” said the firm’s Managing Partner, Jimmy Yates.
The Wyrick Robbins Diversity Scholarship is open to first year, diverse law students. It includes a paid summer clerkship with the firm as part of the 2021 summer associate program. The recipient also is eligible for a $10,000 scholarship. In addition to receiving practical, hands-on experience and financial support, the recipient will be paired with an attorney mentor from the firm during their law school career and be eligible for a potential in-house client rotation opportunity during their summer clerkship.
Applications will be considered based on a variety of factors, including academic and professional credentials, a demonstrated commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion, and interest in the firm and its practice areas. More information on the scholarship and how to apply can be found on the Wyrick Robbins Diversity Scholarship page of our website or wyrick.com/diversity-scholarship. The application deadline is February 10, 2021.
