“Being awarded the Sidney Williams Scholarship was a game-changer for my journey in patent law. Beyond the financial support, having Bill LaFuze as a mentor was transformative. His vast knowledge, paired with his unyielding availability and support, consistently guided me through the intricacies of the legal world. Every career milestone I've reached has Sidney Williams Program’s influence etched into it, and for that, I am deeply grateful.” -Sara Serag 2020 Scholar, Associate at Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati
