Temple University Beasley School of Law Diversity
Kessler Topaz is committed to encouraging and facilitating well-qualified minority undergraduates to pursue a career in the legal profession. To that end, the Firm has partnered with the Temple University Beasley School of Law to offer a yearly scholarship to one deserving minority candidate, covering tuition and related costs, to help promote diversity within the local legal community. The scholarship recipient is also eligible to participate in an internship with the Firm over the summer following their first year of law school. Temple University has educated many of the Firm’s top attorneys and we believe that this institution is the best fit with our Firm’s litigation practices. Temple students have the opportunity to join Temple’s world renowned Trial Advocacy Program, which is an excellent training ground for future litigators. This, coupled with their strenuous curriculum, fosters an environment where creative litigators can begin to make their mark.
