Diversity Recruiting

Lane Powell has more than 140 years of commitment to our communities. As part of this commitment to diversity, we sponsor the George V. Powell (GVP) Diversity Scholarship. The GVP Scholar will be a 2017 summer associate in the firm’s Seattle or Portland office and receive a $7,500.00 scholarship toward tuition and expenses during the student’s third year of law school.

Academic Requirements and Selection Criteria

We are seeking candidates who will contribute meaningfully to the diversity of the legal community and who have a demonstrated desire to work, live, and eventually practice law in Seattle or Portland. The candidates’ academic achievements and record of leadership abilities, community service, and involvement in community issues will be taken into consideration. Candidates must be second year students in good standing at an ABA accredited law school. Candidates in four year joint degree programs will be considered after their third year.
