CHICAGO – The law firm of Levenfeld Pearlstein is pleased to announce the establishment of The Levenfeld Pearlstein Diversity Scholarship, to be awarded to a first-year student of the Chicago-Kent College of Law. The scholarship will be available to a student with financial need, whose personal or family background, life, cultural, or ethnic experience contributes to a more diverse environment at Chicago-Kent and in the legal community.

The Levenfeld Pearlstein Diversity Committee, in conjunction with the Dean of the Chicago-Kent College of Law, will select the finalists and eventual recipient of the scholarship, based on criteria that include financial need, academic accomplishment, work history, community service and extracurricular involvement and leadership.

“We are pleased to establish The Levenfeld Pearlstein Diversity Scholarship in partnership with Chicago-Kent, a school which has long been committed to the education of a diverse legal community,” said Bryan I. Schwartz, chairman of Levenfeld Pearlstein. “It has always been our belief that a diverse legal community benefits everyone involved and we are proud to offer this opportunity to an outstanding student in need.”

Levenfeld Pearlstein is committed to a culture of inclusiveness and understands the need for diversity of people, backgrounds and ideas in the legal and business communities. The firm’s Diversity Committee ensures that Levenfeld Pearlstein continues to successfully attract and retain a diverse pool of talent and that doing so remains a priority for the firm.
