Eversheds Sutherland is pleased to announce that it has established the Eversheds Sutherland Tax Scholarship Fund at New York University’s School of Law. The Fund will be used to provide tuition assistance annually to one LLM student in the law school’s Graduate Tax Program to further inclusivity in the study of tax law.
“We are proud to partner with NYU to promote opportunities for underrepresented groups to join the tax profession,” said Jeffrey A. Friedman, Eversheds Sutherland’s US Tax Practice Group Leader and adjunct professor at NYU’s School of Law. “The Eversheds Sutherland Tax Scholarship Fund is an important part of our broader effort to recruit talented lawyers to join the tax community.”
“We are so pleased to be working with NYU Law’s Graduate Tax Program to make this scholarship available to students,” says Vanessa A. Scott, Chief Diversity Officer and Tax Partner at Eversheds Sutherland. “We are committed to promoting diversity both within our firm and within the broader tax community.”
