Diversity Pipeline Scholarship
At FordHarrison, we believe that a diverse group of attorneys working together is the best way to provide the broad and sophisticated range of talent, experience, and skills clients demand. We believe that a culture where the unique backgrounds, beliefs, skills, and attributes of all people are valued is the foundation of a better, stronger law firm. FordHarrison's Diversity Pipeline Scholarship is part of the firm's comprehensive plan to increase attorney diversity at all levels in our firm.
