NYU law student Amanda Bass wins the firm’s second annual Diversity Scholarship
Our attorneys are proud to announce that New York University School of Law student Amanda Bass is the recipient of our $2,000 Annual Diversity Scholarship.
Amanda is a bright law school student who is helping diversify the student body while pursuing a Juris Doctorate in Human Rights Law. Her scholarship application was chosen out of many talented law school student applicants.
This fall, Amanda began her second year of law school. Prior to law school, she attended Amherst College for a bachelors degree in Mathematics and Black Studies.
Each Diversity Scholarship applicant was asked to submit an essay on how they are working to improve our communities. Amanda impressed us with the many activities she is pursuing, including conversations sponsored by the Black Allied Law Student Association to promote diversity, and reaching out to students so she can, in her words, “[add] the critical perspective informed by my racial, ethnic and gender identity.. that I bring to the study of law”.
While studying for her undergrad at Amherst College, Amanda also worked as a diversity intern helping prospective college students apply and assisting with the organization of two Diversity Open Houses.
We wish Amanda the very best in her future and very promising legal career.
