Today's litigious environment and constantly shifting regulatory landscape raise extraordinary questions and risks for employers. This is why Littler offers such a wide range of employment law solutions. With more than 800 attorneys, 50 locations and a practice that extends into every area of workplace law, we can address any corporate compliance, labor, employment or benefits issue.
While we are the nation's largest employment and labor law firm, our strength lies not just in our size, but in our diversity and depth of experience that comes with it. We are proud to have assembled a staff of lawyers with diverse and accomplished backgrounds, enhancing our ability to represent our clients successfully. At Littler, we understand the importance of diversity and inclusion to the long-term success of our Firm and the legal profession as a whole. In addition to improving our productivity and success, diversity fosters a positive and creative environment that attracts talented individuals, encourages our attorneys and staff to maximize their potential and enhances our ability to respond quickly with innovative solutions to the rapidly changing needs of our clients.
We appreciate that without proper preparation many students find the law school experience overwhelming and difficult to earn top grades. That is why Littler decided to sponsor scholarships to Law Preview's law school prep course.
Littler Mendelson Law Preview Scholarship Criteria

Applications will be accepted now until May 10, 2013. A selection panel will evaluate all completed applications, and scholarship recipients will be notified via email by June 1, 2013.
If you plan to attend UCLA School of Law or UC Hastings College of the Law and meet the scholarship criteria, complete the online application before the scholarship deadline.
Law school is an investment in your future. In order to get the most out of that investment you really need to excel during the first year. A student's 1L grades can earn not only academic honors like law review, but they largely determine whether the most selective legal employers will invite a candidate to interview for a Summer Associate position after the second year. When Littler Mendelson began investigating ways we could help diverse students prepare for the rigors of law school, we spoke to some of our lawyers who attended pre-law programs and reflected fondly on that experience. Proper preparation before law school can have a dramatic impact on a person's academic and professional opportunities and we are thrilled to be in a position to help make a difference in the lives of entering law students by underwriting the cost of their Law Preview tuition. If you are attending a law school we support, and meet the scholarship criteria, I strongly encourage you to submit an application.
