Asim K. Desai Memorial Trial Academy Scholarship

The IADC Foundation started a Trial Academy scholarship in honor of Asim K. Desai, beloved IADC member and two-time Trial Academy faculty member. The scholarship will cover tuition and room and board for a worthy candidate who works for a small firm (30 or fewer attorneys), solo practice, person of color, member of an underrepresented group, or works for a government or non-profit entity.

If you know of a candidate, please encourage them to apply. Click for the guidelines and application form. Applications are due by May 17, 2024.

Asim’s law firm, Gordon & Rees, funded the first year of the scholarship. We are raising funds to enable the scholarship to continue for several years.
