Baker & Hostetler has awarded its Paul D. White Scholarship to CHEE MEI (“WINNIE”) SIM, a third-year law student at Capital. In tribute to Paul D. White, the firm's first minority partner and a pioneer for minorities in the legal profession, a scholarship for minority law students was instituted in 1997 to provide them with valuable experience early in their careers. Awarded annually to law students of African-American, Hispanic, Asian-American, or American Indian descent, the scholarship includes a paid summer clerkship and a $6,000 cash award. The firm has expended more than $1.5 million in scholarships and clerkships for minority law students since its inception.
