Yankwitt LLP Launches 2023-2024 Immediate Impact Scholarship at Pace Law School
White Plains, NY (June 20, 2023) – Yankwitt LLP, Westchester’s go-to law firm for high-stakes, bet-the-company litigation, has launched the 2023-2024 Yankwitt LLP Immediate Impact Scholarship at the Elisabeth Haub School of Law at Pace University. The scholarship will be awarded to an incoming 1L student of color who demonstrates financial need and expresses an interest in social justice. The firm first offered the scholarship in 2020.
“As a White Plains-based law firm, we believe in giving back to our community in tangible ways. This scholarship is one of them,” said Managing Partner Russell Yankwitt. “It allows us to support our local law school and promote social justice, a win-win proposition.”
As Pace University President Marvin Krislow wrote in a letter to Yankwitt LLP, “Scholarships at Pace University are more than just academic awards. They are doorways to extraordinary opportunities—ladders to life-changing experiences for students with the drive and determination to achieve their dreams.”
“We hope to help advance those dreams by offering the scholarship recipient an internship as well, if possible,” added Yankwitt.
Yankwitt LLP supports many organizations in Westchester and the New York metropolitan area, including the Westchester County Bar Association, Federal Bar Council, Business Council of Westchester, Legal Services of the Hudson Valley, ArtsWestchester, and others.
More information about the scholarship is available on the Pace Law School website under First-Year Endowment Funds.
