In tribute to Paul D. White, a pioneer in the legal profession and the firm's first Black partner, a scholarship was created for students who have overcome obstacles in a way that demonstrates that they too have the attributes of a pioneer in the profession or with backgrounds or experiences that enable them to bring a unique perspective to client service.
