Educating future leaders

Scholarships, externships and fellowships

White & Case offers a select number of scholarships, externships and fellowships for law students around the world.


Since 2022, in collaboration with the JSW School of Law, fifth-year Bhutanese law students are provided the opportunity to participate in a 12-week externship in various White & Case offices.


Created in 1995 by our Paris office, the Jim Hurlock – White & Case Scholarship Program provides opportunities for economically disadvantaged law students in France to study abroad. A grant is divided among three students, enabling them to complete their training through advanced studies around the world. This program is unique among Paris law firms in its criteria and selection process.

The White & Case Orison Marden Fellowship funds summer programs for 15 first-year New York University law students who choose to work in a public interest capacity in Europe and developing nations. The Fellowship was established in 1978 at New York University in honor of Orison Marden, a partner and leader at White & Case who served for many years as Director and Chairman of the Board of The Legal Aid Society and was a champion of pro bono work.

The University of Miami School of Law and White & Case LLP award one full-tuition scholarship to attend the White & Case International Arbitration LL.M. Program. Applicants are selected for the White & Case/Carolyn B. Lamm Scholarship based on admission credentials, academic achievements and promise.

In collaboration with Fordham University School of Law, each year we identify and hire a recent LL.M. graduate from Africa to work in our New York office for a one-year fellowship. 

In partnership with two Historically Black Colleges and Universities—Howard University School of Law and Southern University Law Center—the Firm runs an externship program for 2L and 3L law students during the fall and the spring semesters.  Each extern—currently one per school and one per semester—works exclusively on pro bono matters that advance the Firm’s Racial Justice Task Force’s work.  Each student is also paired with an attorney mentor to receive personalized coaching and feedback regarding the practice of law at a global law firm.
