Who Can Apply:
- Before he passed away, my son Derrick Richardson was passionate about his civil law practice and defending people of color against discrimination.
- My son was a giver. He often gave out of the kindness of his heart without expecting anything at all in return. His practice often portrayed his selfless attitude, representing those who are typically silenced in the courtroom and beyond.
- To honor my son’s legacy, I want to bestow the Derrick Richardson Law Student Scholarship to one second or third-year Black law student who is serious about their studies in civil rights law and becoming a lawyer.
Submission: To apply, please write about how you’ll use your Law degree to help disadvantaged Black people in the courtroom.
