Archer & Greiner Establishes Diversity Scholarship at Seton Hall University Law School

To continue to support the development of all perspectives and ensure the diversification of the legal profession, as well as to help cultivate a culture within the legal profession where all talented contributors can have a path to long-term success, Archer & Greiner PC on Monday, announced the establishment of the Archer & Greiner Fellowship for Diversity with Seton Hall University School of Law located in Newark.

In addition to other criteria required by Seton Hall Law School, preference will be given to diverse students. Applicants will also be responsible for demonstrating how they have promoted and supported diversity and invited to submit a short essay describing how they overcame adversity in their lives.

Interested students will apply during their first year of law school and will be selected before the start of their second year. The scholarship would be used to alleviate tuition fees for the second year and, if the stated academic requirements are met, for their third year as well.

The scholarship recipient will also have the opportunity to participate in Archer’s summer internship program at the end of the second year of law school.

Announcing the scholarship, Christopher Gibson, Chairman of Archer, said: “We are delighted to partner with Seton Hall Law School, many of whose alumni work at Archer, and delighted to sponsor this scholarship. We hope that, through efforts like this, we will continue to keep diversity and inclusion at the forefront as we work toward a profession that is more representative of the communities we serve.

At Seton Hall Law School, diversity in all its forms is an essential part of the school’s culture.

Dean Kathleen Boozang of Seton Hall Law School said, “Seton Hall Law takes a 360-degree approach to achieving diversity and fairness – the issue permeates every decision we make. Ultimately, Seton Hall Law strives to achieve exceptional results for every member of our community, which requires thought and investment. We are grateful to Archer Law for making this investment in the students of Seton Hall Law.
