The Richard Mintz Diversity Scholarship

At Mintz, we strive to create an environment where people from all backgrounds are positioned for success. As part of our commitment to promoting diversity at the firm and in the legal profession, we have awarded the Richard Mintz Diversity Scholarship to an exemplary diverse law student each year since 2010.

The scholarship is given to community-minded 2Ls from diverse backgrounds who have shown academic excellence and commitment to diversity. Its namesake Richard Mintz (1921 – 2011), the firm’s longest serving partner and the son of a founding partner, was known for his passion for people and his commitment to creating a progressive workplace.
