Anderson & Kreiger LLP is committed to using the firm’s financial resources and social capital to promote racial and ethnic diversity in the Greater Boston legal community. As part of this commitment, we established the Anderson & Kreiger Legal Diversity Fund to directly invest in the future success of aspiring lawyers who demonstrate financial need and who identify as belonging to racial and ethnic groups that are underrepresented in the legal profession. The firm will award annual stipends to law school and college students to help address the challenges faced by those who lack the financial capital to focus exclusively on their education and whose financial situation may limit their range of legal career options.
Annually, Anderson & Kreiger will grant one $50,000 stipend to a 1L or 2L law student enrolled in a 3-year ABA accredited JD program, or 2L or 3L student enrolled in a 4-year ABA accredited JD program who demonstrates financial need, identifies as part of a racial or ethnic group that is underrepresented in the legal profession, and intends to begin practicing law in Greater Boston following graduation. The goal of the stipend or stipends is to remove financial barriers to the successful completion of law school and to the successful start of the recipient’s career.
In addition to the stipend:
Annually, Anderson & Kreiger will grant ten $5,000 stipends to college seniors or juniors who demonstrate financial need, identify as part of a racial or ethnic group that is underrepresented in the legal profession, attend college in Greater Boston or are currently Greater Boston residents, and are interested in attending law school and practicing law.
The goal of the stipend is to provide financial assistance to encourage such students to apply to law school.
Each recipient will be assigned a mentor at Anderson & Kreiger to help them:
Each recipient will be invited, but not required, to participate in firm-organized events with the other recipients and Anderson & Kreiger training programs, and firm-sponsored networking and social events.
