Company announces Trial LawHER scholarship to rising third year female

For the second year in a row, Milestone is offering the Trial LawHER scholarship, a $10,000 award for a third-year female law student interested in becoming a plaintiff trial lawyer.

Milestone — a settlement planning and administration firm serving attorneys, firms, plaintiffs, and their families for more than 20 years — plans to work with the recipient and others to educate new attorneys about the value of settlement planning while they continue to promote opportunities for women in the legal and financial sectors.

The deadline for scholarship application is Aug. 31. Additional information and the application can be found at

“We are thrilled to not only directly support a talented aspiring lawyer, but also our next generation of women leaders by making them aware of all the resources and leadership opportunities available for them to succeed,” said Amy Fogle, chief executive officer of Milestone. “Diversity of women in leadership positions in the financial and legal sector ultimately leads to greater and better perspectives for clients, and the overall empowerment of women in the workplace.”

Despite the fact that female legal students outnumber men, only one in every three practicing attorneys is female. According to a 2021 survey from the National Association of Women Lawyers, pay for women at U.S. law firms continues to lag behind pay for men in similar positions, and women still only represent about 22 percent of equity partners in law firms.
