Women's History Month 2020

In 2017, the firm launched the Stradley Ronon Diversity Scholarship, a program that identifies, supports, and trains exceptionally qualified diverse law students who demonstrate the characteristics of future leaders in the legal profession. Designed for rising second-year law students, the Scholarship provides recipients with financial support, ongoing mentoring, and hands-on experience working in both a law firm and corporate law department of one of Stradley’s clients. During the summer of 2018, this program provided a recipient from an area law school with a $10,000 scholarship and a paid position. The student’s summer was split between Stradley and the legal department of firm client and in-house partner AmerisourceBergen Corporation.

While Stradley partnered with the Hispanic Bar Association of Pennsylvania in 2018 and the Barristers’ (Black Law Students) Association in 2017, Stradley Ronon will in upcoming years partner with other diversity law student organizations, such as OutLaw (the LGBT Law Students Association) on a rotating basis. In 2019, Stradley is partnering with the Asian Pacific American Bar Association of Pennsylvania. The 2019 Diversity Scholarship Program recipient – Temple law student, Christopher Hirokawa – will split his summer between Stradley Ronon and the legal department of firm client Macquarie Investment Management.
