SurePoint Technologies is honored to underwrite and support The Foundation of the Association of Legal Administrators (the Foundation) with a donation to the Foundation’s Student Legal Career Scholarship Program. The scholarship program is an initiative focusing on the future of the legal profession, specifically students pursuing non-attorney careers in the legal industry. “The Foundation is thrilled to have SurePoint’s underwriting for our Student Scholarship and Visibility Initiative,” said Michelle Cohen, President of the Foundation. “Today’s students are tomorrow’s legal management leaders, and we want to encourage and support those career paths in as many ways as we are able to do so. Thank you SurePoint for boldly stepping in to support this emerging initiative to help develop future leaders in the legal industry.” 

One of SurePoint’s core values is Creating the Future by uncovering opportunities and unlocking new possibilities,” said Laurence Winters, Chief Community Officer at SurePoint and Vice Chair of the ALA’s DEIA Committee. “On behalf of the SurePoint Community, we are honored to donate to a program that aligns with our values and focuses on developing future leaders in the legal industry.”  

The scholarship program is for college juniors, seniors, or master’s students enrolled in an accredited college/university curriculum and interested in pursuing a non-attorney career in the legal industry, including legal management, paralegal studies, and other legal support functions.
