2021 HLSF Scholarship Recipients

Nicholas Schcolnik – 2021 Perkins Coie LLP Scholarship

Nicholas is a first-year student at the University of Chicago Law School. He received his college degree from Amherst College. A Chicago native, he served in the Peace Corps in Ethiopia and was a Fulbright English teaching assistant in Argentina. Living in communities where the rule of law was weak, and experiencing its consequences (or lack thereof), motivated Nicholas to pursue a career in law. Nicholas’ current legal interests are criminal law and international arbitration. He hopes to dedicate his career to combat corruption and to uphold the rule of law by working as a prosecutor of public corruption and white-collar crime. This summer, he will be interning with the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Hawaii. The HLSF scholarship will help Nicholas manage the cost of law school and develop his legal network. HLSF proudly welcomes this future Latino lawyer to its network and the overall community of Latino lawyers.
