Law Preview Scholarships Sponsored By The National Diversity Scholarship Fund

Top law firms and companies understand that their lawyers must be diverse in order to best serve their clients. That is why many top 100 law firms and Fortune 500 have invested heavily to improve diversity among practicing attorneys and the legal community in general. These organizations understand that improving diversity in the legal profession requires more than just hiring and promoting diverse attorneys within their firms. It also requires a sustained commitment to increase the pipeline of diverse students who earn strong grades in law school and are, therefore, positioned to compete for the most sought-after jobs and become the profession's next generation of leaders and decision-makers.

Law Preview (the nation's largest law school prep course) has teamed up with Lexis Nexis, one of the world’s leading online research providers, to provide Law Preview Scholarships to select members of our entering class.

Restrictions:

No scholarship awards will be given directly to students. The funds must be directed to a third party such as the law school for tuition or to a company providing equipment for the disabled student.

THE SAMUEL KRUGLIAK LEGAL SCHOLARSHIP

During his lifetime, Mr. Krugliak played active roles in the legal community serving as the past president of the Stark County Bar Association and former chairman of the Board of Commissioners of the Ohio Supreme Court. Giving back to the community and civic involvement continues to be an inherent aspect of the firm’s culture today. The Samuel Krugliak Legal Scholarship is awarded to law students on an annual basis.
