Smith Moore Awards Scholarships to Duke, UVa Law Students

March 29, 2007

Ten year-old scholarship program assists in growing the ranks of minority lawyers.

GREENSBORO – Smith Moore LLP has selected this year's recipients of the annual scholarships the firm awards to first-year minority law students.  Earning the Smith Moore scholarships for 2007 are Tevenia Jacobs who attends law school at the University of Virginia and Sowmya Krishnamoorthy who attends Duke University School of Law.

Smith Moore annually provides law school scholarships of $5,000 per year to outstanding minority law students.  In addition to the scholarship awards, Smith Moore scholars work at the firm as summer associates following their first year of law school.

"The attorneys at Smith Moore have long recognized the importance of enhancing the opportunities for minority students to attend law school, and ultimately practice law in North Carolina, Georgia or the Southeast," Smith Moore managing partner Steve Earp said.  "We believe our scholarship program was the first of its kind in North Carolina and, for the last ten years, it has provided us with a way to help foster opportunities for top minority students."

The Smith Moore LLP scholarship program, which was instituted in 1998, has provided more than $250,000 in scholarship assistance to minority law students.
