Bradley's commitment to diversity is not just a passive ideal, but an active goal that allows us to build a team with broad backgrounds and experiences. Every year, we offer two Diversity Scholarships to promote the education of well-qualified law students from backgrounds that are traditionally underrepresented in the legal profession. We award scholarships of up to $5,000 to first-year students and up to $10,000 to second-year students who are committed to broadening the diversity of voices in the legal profession. Scholarship recipients are required to clerk in one of Bradley's offices for at least six weeks during the summer after the scholarships are awarded. (We will do our best to honor the scholarship recipient's first choice for office placement, but maintain the right to make the final decision.)
