2016 Charles H Walker DI Scholarship Information and Application

Consistent with our rich tradition and commitment to diversity and inclusion, Bricker & Eckler LLP is pleased to present the Charles H. Walker Diversity & Inclusion Scholarship for 2016.

Established to provide a second-year law student with a valuable employment experience early in their legal career, this scholarship will be awarded to a candidate who: demonstrates leadership skills, academic strength, service to the community and an overall commitment to excellence, and who has exhibited meaningful commitment to diversity and inclusion.

We proudly dedicate this scholarship in honor of our partner and trusted friend, Charles H. Walker, whose career and service to our community exemplify a strong commitment to both the legal profession and Bricker’s tradition of diversity and inclusion. For many years, he served as a recruiter and mentor to our younger attorneys and helped guide Bricker & Eckler’s diversity and inclusion commitment.

Students who will be 2L students in the Fall of 2015 currently enrolled in an ABA-approved law school are eligible to apply for the scholarship. One scholarship in the form of a $10,000 cash award (less any applicable taxes and withholdings) toward law school tuition and other law school related expenses will be awarded. In addition, the scholarship recipient will receive a paid summer associate position for the summer of 2016.

Lach, Recruiting/Professional Development Coordinator, Bricker & Eckler LLP, 100 South Third Street, Columbus, OH 43215.
