White & Case, a global law firm with offices in approximately 40 major cities throughout the world, is recognized as a pioneering international law firm with cross-border expertise. The Miami Office of White & Case, founded over 25 years ago, is a participant in Miami’s on-campus interviewing program and regularly hires Miami Law graduates. The Miami office is consistently awarded and recognized by The Best Lawyers in America, Chambers, and other leading industry publications, across a variety of practices.
Miami Law alumni have contributed to the success of this powerhouse firm, including Carolyn Lamm, JD’73, partner and top international litigator in the firm’s D.C. office, past president of the American Bar Association (2009-2010), and visiting professor at Miami Law.
Established in 2014, the White and Case Scholarships provide full law tuition (fall and spring) for all credits, including six approved non-law course credits taken in other departments of the University and applied toward the Juris Doctor degree, plus an annual stipend of $1,000. In addition, White and Case Scholars are granted a full-tuition scholarship for one Miami Law summer session following their first or second year of law school. Specific requirements to maintain the award are detailed in the student's initial scholarship notification.
Additionally, Scholars who maintain their required renewal GPA upon completion of their JD degree are eligible to receive a full tuition scholarship if they are admitted into and enroll in one our LL.M. programs directly upon graduation (or in the case of the School’s joint degree JD/LL.M. offerings, before graduation). The School offers LL.M. programs in International Law, Tax Law, Real Property Development, Estate Planning and Ocean & Coastal Law.
No separate application is required for the White & Case Scholarships. These scholarships are awarded on the basis of admissions credentials and achievements without regard to financial need.
Those selected for these prestigious awards participate in a scholarship conference held the last weekend in February. By mid-February, finalists are notified and invited to participate in the scholarship conference at the School's expense.
To ensure the award of the Scholarship, recipients must accept their scholarship award and pay the two $500 seat deposits by the required dates. The letter of admittance and enclosure outline the enrollment verification process.
