Conrad & Scherer’s Pathways to Careers in Law Reveals NSU Scholarship and Summer Intern

The goal is to provide students from underrepresented backgrounds with the opportunity to fully explore the path to a career in law.

Yasmin Harebin (main photo), a rising senior in the Law Magnet program at Fort Lauderdale High, has been chosen as the recipient of the 2024 summer internship by the Conrad & Scherer Pathways to Careers in Law program. Harebin emerged as the top choice from a pool of 14 applicants and will have the opportunity to gain valuable hands-on experience by working at the firm.

“I’ve heard from past interns that this will be an amazing opportunity,” Harebin says.

As a Fellow, she gained valuable insight into the legal field through interactions with judges and attorneys and visits to the Conrad & Scherer offices and local courthouses.

“I especially enjoyed visiting the NSU law school and participating in a mock law class,” she says. “Meeting so many professionals solidified my desire to pursue a legal career. My analytical skills make law a great fit for me.”

Jordyn Minnis, a 2023 program Fellow,  will be returning for her second summer internship.

Aneya Williams, the oldest of eight siblings raised by a single parent in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, has been granted the four-year Conrad & Scherer Pathways Scholarship by the program. This fall, she will attend NSU to pursue a bachelor’s degree in law, with the long-term aspiration of becoming a criminal defense attorney.

“I am grateful for the Conrad & Scherer Scholarship, which will not only help lift the financial burden but allow me to further my education and make positive changes in the community,” she says.

Conrad & Scherer’s Pathways to Careers in Law program, now entering its third year, is a partnership between Conrad & Scherer, Nova Southeastern University’s Shepard Broad College of Law (NSU Law), and Fort Lauderdale High School’s Law Magnet program. Every fall, students in the law magnet program can apply to become Pathways Fellows. Currently, 38 students have successfully completed the program, and three of them are pursuing a bachelor’s degree in law at NSU.

“There’s no greater thrill than seeing the law career pipeline we’ve created begin to fill with so many bright students,” Janine McGuire says, a partner with Conrad & Scherer.  “This collaboration with Fort Lauderdale High and NSU will make a meaningful difference in the future of our profession.”

Editor-in-Chief

BIOGRAPHY

Drew Limsky joined Lifestyle Media Group in August 2020 as Editor-in-Chief of South Florida Business & Wealth. His first issue of SFBW, October 2020, heralded a reimagined structure, with new content categories and a slew of fresh visual themes. “As sort of a cross between Forbes and Robb Report, with a dash of GQ and Vogue,” Limsky says, “SFBW reflects South Florida’s increasingly sophisticated and dynamic business and cultural landscape.”

Limsky, an avid traveler, swimmer and film buff who holds a law degree and Ph.D. from New York University, likes to say, “I’m a doctor, but I can’t operate—except on your brand.” He wrote his dissertation on the nonfiction work of Joan Didion. Prior to that, Limsky received his B.A. in English, summa cum laude, from Emory University and earned his M.A. in literature at American University in connection with a Masters Scholar Award fellowship.

Limsky came to SFBW at the apex of a storied career in journalism and publishing that includes six previous lead editorial roles, including for some of the world’s best-known brands. He served as global editor-in-chief of Lexus magazine, founding editor-in-chief of custom lifestyle magazines for Cadillac and Holland America Line, and was the founding editor-in-chief of Modern Luxury Interiors South Florida. He also was the executive editor for B2B magazines for Acura and Honda Financial Services, and he served as travel editor for Conde Nast. Magazines under Limsky’s editorship have garnered more than 75 industry awards.

He has also written for many of the country’s top newspapers and magazines, including The New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Miami Herald, Boston Globe, USA Today, Worth, Robb Report, Afar, Time Out New York, National Geographic Traveler, Men’s Journal, Ritz-Carlton, Elite Traveler, Florida Design, Metropolis and Architectural Digest Mexico. His other clients have included Four Seasons, Acqualina Resort & Residences, Yahoo!, American Airlines, Wynn, Douglas Elliman and Corcoran. As an adjunct assistant professor, Limsky has taught journalism, film and creative writing at the City University of New York, Pace University, American University and other colleges.
