Established in 2002, the Frank Rothman Scholarship is awarded each year to a top incoming student at USC Gould School of Law. The scholarship covers full tuition for three years and includes a summer fellowship - a guaranteed placement at Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom during the summer after the scholar's first year of law school.
The scholarship honors the late Frank Rothman, a 1951 graduate of USC Gould and one of the nation's most respected litigators.
"The goal of the Frank Rothman Scholars Program is to attract the nation's top law school applicants to USC and to provide them with unparalleled opportunities to develop skills and establish key professional ties before they graduate from law school," says former USC Gould Dean Matthew L. Spitzer. "Judging by the caliber of the first Rothman Scholars and the opportunities they've had, the scholarship is everything we'd hoped it would be - and more."
