Mintz Levin establishes a diversity scholarship
Boston law firm Mintz Levin Cohn Ferris Glovsky and Popeo PC said it has established a diversity scholarship named for Herman Mintz, one of the original name partners of the firm.
"The scholarship will provide $10,000 toward law school tuition to a first-year student of color for his or her second year of law school," the firm said in a press release. "The scholarship also provides the recipient with a summer position with the firm between his or her first and second years of law school."
The scholarship is open to first-year law students of color "who have demonstrated excellence in their studies, are community minded and have demonstrated a commitment to diversity," the firm said.
In a statement, Mintz Levin managing member Robert I. Bodian said, "This scholarship is a fitting tribute to Herman Mintz, who along with his two partners, Ben Levin and Haskell Cohn, created a firm with opportunities for lawyers, regardless of their status."
