Become A Sponsor

Thanks to our sponsors, the inaugural Unity in Diversity Scholarship Banquet was a tremendous success, raising over $100,000 to fund scholarships for four students at the University of Memphis Cecil C. Humphreys School of Law. This year, the Banquet will once again serve as a key fundraiser for diversity scholarships and related initiatives in the Memphis community. Through the continued generosity and support of our sponsors, we will continue to propel the next generation of lawyers into their careers with little to no debt and reaffirm this community’s unwavering commitment to furthering diversity and inclusion in every way imaginable.
