UKS Attorneys Attend CBA Scholars Meeting
On Monday, October 5, 2020 UKS attorneys Evan Goldstein, Richard Dighello and Gideon Asemnor participated in the Connecticut Bar Association’s first LSAT Scholars Meeting. The purpose of the remote meeting was to celebrate and acknowledge the CBA’s first class of LSAT scholarship winners. The CBA and certain signatories to Connecticut's Legal Community Diversity & Inclusion Pledge & Plan have teamed up with Kaplan Partner Solutions to implement this LSAT Initiative. The purpose of the LSAT Initiative is to provide scholarships for diverse candidates to enroll in an LSAT preparation course. The LSAT Initiative originated as a result of efforts to address the lack of representation in the legal field and to increase the pipeline of diverse talent that enters the legal profession in Connecticut. UKS is a signatory to the Diversity & Inclusion Pledge and Plan and was instrumental in developing the LSAT Initiative. In addition to the LSAT Scholars and UKS attorneys, participants in the meeting included representatives of the CBA and admissions personnel from UCONN and Quinnipiac Law Schools who provided the scholars with valuable information on LSAT preparation and the law school admissions process.
Attorneys Goldstein, Dighello and Asemnor are all members of UKS’ Diversity and Inclusion Committee, which is chaired by Attorney Goldstein. For more information on UKS’ Diversity and Inclusion efforts, please visit the UKS website at https://www.uks.com/about-us/diversity-inclusion/.
