We are grateful to Latham & Watkins for its support of the Launchpad Scholars Program.

Recognizing that talented students may have differing levels of knowledge about and access to careers in law, Latham & Watkins is committed to leveling the educational playing field for students from historically underrepresented groups and contributing to the careers of young, aspiring lawyers at the earliest stages of their education. The firm has numerous programs and partnerships in place to promote diversity, equity, and inclusion at the firm, and in the legal profession at large.
