As part of Michigan Auto Law’s commitment to promote diversity, they are pleased to announce that they are sponsoring an annual scholarship program that aims at providing financial aid to students who add diversity to their law school body, in their journey to pursue their legal careers. This opportunity will help provide financial aid to law students to not just reduce the financial burden of their cost of education but also motivate them to pursue their careers with a newfound rigour. Applications are now open for the Fall 2021 intake, to any student who is either about the start or is in their first or second year of law school. So, if you are a student who is currently enrolled in any course at the university and are passionate about bringing justice to any and all, this is an opportunity for you.
The “Diversity Scholarship” which is an initiative of the “Michigan Auto Law Scholarship Program” is a significant effort to increase and catalyse diversity in law schools. The future lawyers in the making not just frame how our justice system is going to work, but having a lack of diversity will deprive any case of the kind of diverse perspectives people from different cultural backgrounds and walks and talks of life can bring to the table. Thus in order to bring about this bigger change, it is essential that we start at the grassroots level – the pa=lace where every capable lawyer begins his journey – at law schools. Thus is you believe that you represent a community that is underrepresented and are in need of financial support, then this scholarship is the right fit for you.
