George V. Powell Diversity Scholarship Winner Announced

Bookmark and Share

The first annual George V. Powell Diversity Scholar is William Cano. William is a second-year student at Stanford Law School. He is a graduate of the University of Utah, where he studied mathematics, and has taught schoolchildren in both Utah and California. His fiancé is from Seattle and he plans to be involved with the Domestic Abuse Response Team (DART) through the sheriff’s office while in Seattle this summer when he serves as summer associate at the Firm. We are pleased to support William as he pursues his legal education.

The George V. Powell Diversity Scholarship recognizes the achievements of law students who contribute meaningfully to the diversity of the legal community and have demonstrated the desire to eventually practice law in Seattle or Portland. Candidates are considered for their academic track record, their history of leadership, and their involvement in community service and community issues. Candidates must be second-year students in ABA-accredited law schools. (Candidates in four-year joint degree programs are considered after their third year.) One candidate is selected annually for a $6,000 scholarship and a summer associate position with the Firm.
