Diversity Scholarship Recipient Testimonial - Carlson Caspers

“The Carlson Caspers 1L Scholarship provided me with much more than a financial award. The internship before my 1L year gave me a window into the legal profession, teaching me professional skills and providing a foundation for my 1L curriculum. The mentorship I received helped me navigate law school and make the most of my education. But perhaps most importantly, the attorneys at Carlson Caspers have given me valuable professional relationships that will last a lifetime.”
