Livingston, New Jersey – February 22, 2020 – Veritext Legal Solutions, the leader in deposition and litigation support solutions, today announces the company has expanded its scholarship program to include the state of New York through a scholarship for the Long Island Business Institute (LIBI).
Veritext partners with accredited schools and organizations to provide scholarships, introductory classes, theory and speed-building to students interested in exploring the career of a court reporter and studying to be part of the profession. In addition to this latest scholarship which will be awarded by LIBI on April 15, so far in 2020 Veritext has awarded its first scholarship to the College of Court Reporting (an online program) in January, and Taft College in California will be presenting its scholarship in March/April.
“We are so excited to be able to offer these scholarships to aspiring court reporters,” states Nancy Josephs, CEO of Veritext Legal Solutions. “We are deeply committed to this profession and being able to support the New York community has special meaning for us. We recently acquired Diamond Reporting, Winter Reporting and the former U.S. court reporting business of Epiq – all with bases in New York. We are very proud and honored to have been recognized by the legal community in New York as the number one court reporting and deposition services provider among readers of the New York Law Journal. We are appreciative of all those who support us in our efforts to help drive this profession forward.”
Veritext is strongly committed to strengthening and advancing the profession of court reporting. The company’s recent contributions to the stenographic profession include providing scholarships for aspiring stenographers, becoming a major supporter of Project Steno – raising over $25,000 in 2019 – offering NCRA accredited continuing education (CEU courses) for stenographers, hosting Realtime Theory I & II through Baltimore City Community College and Delaware State University, collaborating with and supporting countless national and regional associations and participating in the NCRA A to Z™ program. In addition, the company has created the Veritext Student Resource Center to support the court reporting profession and inspire the next generation of stenographers.
