In celebration of Black History Month, SA's Committee for Diversity and Inclusion helped fund scholarships to African American law students throughout the Midwest Region, including Illinois, Indiana, Missouri, and Wisconsin.
On February 20, the Cook County Bar Association Foundation awarded scholarships to African American students from DePaul, John Marshall and Loyola law schools.
On March 1st the Marion County Bar Association in Indianapolis awarded scholarships to local African American law students.
In May an African American law student from Marquette University Law School was awarded a scholarship funded by SmithAmundsen.
SmithAmundsen also donated to the Mound City Bar Association in St. Louis, which awards scholarships to local law students in July.
We are proud to be among those who helped fund the scholarships. Congratulations to each of the recipients!
We embrace the diverse perspectives and experiences that exist within the legal profession. To that end, we are dedicated to nurturing a culturally rich, collaborative and inclusive working environment.
