Dallas – Thompson & Knight LLP has awarded its fourth annual Thompson & Knight Law Preview Scholarships to five diverse students. The 2015 scholarship recipients, Felix Eyzaguirre, Gloriana Gonzalez, Nathaniel Lawson, Tiffany Li, and Bernardo Sada-Paz, will enter the University of Houston Law Center this fall.
“Through the Law Preview program, we are able to support law students of diverse backgrounds and broaden the pipeline of diverse individuals in the legal profession, which increases the variety of perspectives within the legal industry,” Nichole Dotson-Olajuwon, the Firm’s Chief Diversity Officer.
To be eligible for a Thompson & Knight Law Preview Scholarship, applicants must be a member of a racial, ethnic, or gender group which has been historically underrepresented in the legal profession or a member of the LGBT community, and enrolled to begin classes at University of Houston Law Center in the fall.
Scholarship recipients attend a six-day, intensive Law Preview prep course taught by distinguished faculty that helps students prepare for the first year of law school. During the course, students receive overviews for each core first-year course and learn efficient study skills, unique exam-taking methods, and time management techniques. Courses are offered in various areas of study including civil procedure, constitutional law, contracts, criminal law, property, torts, and legal research and writing. For more information, click here.
