Beck Redden to Provide Scholarships to UHLC Pre-Law Pipeline Scholars
August 10, 2021
Beck Redden LLP is proud to expand its support of the University of Houston Law Center Pre-Law Pipeline Program by awarding two scholarships to Avyan Mejdeen and Alexis Austin-Gant. These newly appointed UHLC Pipeline Program Beck Redden Scholars are remarkable women. Avyan aspires to become an attorney who specializes in international human rights and civil rights law while Alexis seeks to become an advocate for children in the adoption system. They will receive The Princeton Review’s LSAT Ultimate preparation course, study materials customized for the scholars, and LSAT/CAS fee registration for the law school admissions test.
The Firm has partnered with the UHLC Pre-Law Pipeline Program for a number of years, serving as faculty, and mentoring and speaking to future law students from underrepresented groups. While many undergraduates aspire to achieve a career in the legal profession, the path to law school and navigating the law school admission process can be daunting, especially for first-generation, low-income, and minority students. As a result, the Firm is proud to offer financial support to scholars as they prepare for the LSAT. We recognize the importance of preparing properly for the LSAT and its role in setting students up for success. We also believe that as lawyers, we have a significant responsibility to ensure the next generation of lawyers reflects the communities they are charged to represent.
Designed to help members of underrepresented groups in the legal profession, the University of Houston Law Center’s Pre-Law Pipeline Program provides crucial support, including LSAT training, introductory classes, internships, and professional development workshops, to help talented students become familiar with the processes of getting into and succeeding in law school.
