Eight students receive LSAT Prep scholarships from Warner

Eight minority students have received Law School Admissions Test, or LSAT, Preparation scholarships from Warner Norcross + Judd LLP.

Now in its 11th year, the program provides scholarships to enable selected minority students at Michigan colleges to attend a study course designed to prepare them to take the LSAT. Studies have shown that students who take a formal LSAT prep course score higher on the test, which determines entrance into law school.

The 2018 scholarship winners are:

- Julia Alexander, Oakland University
- Anna Buckingham, Calvin College
- Kierra Gray, University of Michigan Ann Arbor
- Alexandria Jackson, Western Michigan University
- Tierra Love-Jones, Davenport University
- Allison Wilder, Davenport University
- Desirae Williams, Central Michigan University
- Claudia Yasso, Wayne State University

The LSAT program is one of two scholarship initiatives offered by the firm to promote diversity in the legal profession. Warner also sponsors a Minority Scholarship Program that provides financial support to students pursuing a legal career. Since it began offering scholarships, Warner has provided more than $185,000 to support programs that encourage minority students to pursue a law career.
