NYU Law announces new Eversheds Sutherland tax scholarship

NYU School of Law is pleased to announce a generous gift from Eversheds Sutherland (US) LLP to establish the Eversheds Sutherland Tax Scholarship Fund. The Fund will be used to provide tuition assistance annually to one LLM student in the Law School’s Graduate Tax Program to further inclusivity in the study of tax at the NYU Law community. 

“The NYU Law Graduate Tax Program has supercharged countless careers,” says Steven Dean, faculty director of the program. “Eversheds Tax—where my law school classmate Stacey Abrams started her career—is providing invaluable support as we seek to attract talented future leaders from underrepresented groups to the program and expand inclusivity in the tax profession.”

“We are so pleased to be working with NYU Law’s Graduate Tax Program to make this scholarship available to students,” says Vanessa Scott, Eversheds Sutherland chief diversity officer and tax partner. “We are committed to promoting diversity both within our firm and within the overall tax profession.”
