Consistent with our rich tradition and commitment to diversity and inclusion, Bricker & Eckler LLP annually awards the Charles H. Walker Diversity & Inclusion Scholarship. Established to provide first-year minority law students with a valuable employment experience early in their legal career, this scholarship is awarded to a candidate who demonstrates leadership skills, academic strength, service to the community and an overall commitment to excellence.
We proudly dedicate this scholarship in honor of our partner and trusted friend, Charles H. Walker, whose career and service to our community exemplify a strong commitment to both the legal profession and Bricker's tradition of diversity and inclusion. For many years, he served as a recruiter and mentor to our younger attorneys and helped guide Bricker & Eckler's diversity and inclusion commitment.
Students in their first year of legal studies currently enrolled in an ABA-approved law school are eligible to apply for the scholarship. One scholarship in the form of a $10,000 cash award (less any applicable taxes and withholdings) towards law school tuition and other law school related expenses is awarded each year. In addition, the scholarship recipient receives a paid summer associate position the year their scholarship is awarded.
