Biederman Scholars

In an effort to recognize excellence in academic achievement, and encourage and facilitate career success, the Biederman Institute established the Biederman Scholars program to help expand opportunities for promising future entertainment lawyers. Each year, three or four outstanding students are selected for this honor.

Biederman Scholars participate in a variety of Institute initiatives, including an industry mentor program, behind-the-scenes participation in Biederman Institute programs such as the "A Conversation with..." series, and priority placement in entertainment and media company externships and law firm practicums. The Biederman Scholars also participate in further developing new Biederman Institute programs such as an entertainment and media law blog, an awards dinner to honor outstanding members of the Southwestern entertainment and media law community, a new summer international program in India, and an Entertainment and the Arts Legal Aid Clinic.
