Bracewell & Giuliani LLP is an international law firm with 470 lawyers in Texas, New York, Washington, D.C., Connecticut, Seattle, Dubai, and London. We serve Fortune 500 companies, major financial institutions, leading private investment funds, governmental entities and individuals concentrated in the energy, technology and financial services sectors worldwide.
Bracewell & Giuliani is committed to the recruitment, retention, development, and promotion of attorneys and staff from a broad range of backgrounds. The firm recognizes that creativity, cooperation and mutual respect are the natural result of an environment in which individual contributions are valued. In turn, the creation of a dynamic work environment that is inclusive and rewarding for all personnel enables us to produce the innovative, real-world solutions that are essential to meeting the needs of our clients.
While we understand that a diverse legal profession is highly important, we also appreciate that without proper preparation most students find the law school experience overwhelming and extremely difficult to earn top grades. That is why Bracewell & Giuliani decided to sponsor scholarships to Law Preview's law school prep course -- a program that some of our most successful lawyers took before they themselves entered law school.
Bracewell & Giuliani Law Preview Scholarship Criteria
To be eligible to become a Bracewell & Giuliani Law Preview Scholarship recipient, applicants must be (i) a member of a racial, ethnic, or gender group which has been historically underrepresented in the legal profession or a member of the LGBT community; and (ii) enrolled to begin classes at SMU-Dedman School of Law or University of Houston Law Center in the fall of 2013.
Applications will be accepted until the scholarship deadlin. A selection panel will evaluate all completed applications, and scholarship recipients will be notified on a rolling basis.
If you plan to attend SMU-Dedman School of Law or University of Houston Law Center and meet the scholarship criteria, complete the online application before the scholarship deadline.
A student's grades during the first-year of law school are extremely important. Top law firms recruit for their Summer Associate programs during the fall semester of the 2L year and often only consider a student's 1L performance when deciding who to interview. Grades should be considered a top priority over participation on journals, moot court and other extracurricular activities. Given the importance of 1L grades, Bracewell & Giuliani is committed to helping students enter law school fully prepared for the challenges that they will face by providing scholarships for their tuition to attend the Law Preview class. We have been a proud sponsor of the Law Preview program since 2009 because we know that proper preparation can make a real difference in the lives of students about to enter law school.
