THE CLA LABOR & EMPLOYMENT LAW SECTION SUMMER 2022 LAW STUDENT SCHOLARSHIP RECIPIENTS
The Labor and Employment Law Section of the California Lawyers Association and the California Lawyers Foundation are committed to fostering the career growth of persons of color, women, members of the LGBTQ+ community, people with disabilities, and members of other underrepresented groups interested in practicing labor and employment law in areas that support and promote diversity. We awarded scholarships to diverse law students for Summer 2022, each in an amount up to $8,000. The purpose of the scholarships is to provide funding to diverse law students to engage in legal endeavors in an employment or labor related field that are non-compensated or undercompensated.
