2021 MWH Law Group Diversity & Inclusion Scholarship

MWH Law Group LLP
MWH is working to move the needle when it comes to diversity in corporate law, and future generations of lawyers play a big role in making this possible. Minorities are underrepresented in the legal profession, especially at the senior level. Since its inception, MWH has consistently addressed biases and discrimination in the legal work environment, pushing for opportunities that have led to improve diversity, equity, and inclusion. The strength of MWH is directly tied to the diverse background of its entire team.
