It takes time a significant amount of time and effort to become an attorney. It also takes money to pay for the education necessary become a member of the bar. The sacrifice is substantial, but so are the rewards. Along with them come, we believe, certain responsibilities. Making a difference in one's community, or on a larger scale, can have a positive effect on individuals and on society. A law degree enables a person to help others, to help the community, and to help the world we live in to be a better place.
The process of becoming a lawyer is an expensive one. The cost of attending college, and then law school, can be staggering. At the same time, many prospective law students are also doing their best to support themselves and, in some cases, their families, while still in school. The scholarship being offered represents an effort to ease, to at least some degree, the financial burden of attending law school.
Law Student Scholarship
The $1,000 scholarship will be applied to defray a portion of the cost of tuition at an ABA-accredited United States law school. It will be a direct tuition payment to that law school. The successful applicant must utilize the scholarship fund within a year after the date of notification that he or she has been selected as the scholarship recipient. We do not require that you be enrolled in law school when you submit your application.
United States citizens who are attending, or who plan to attend, a U.S. law school that is accredited by the American Bar Association are eligible to apply for the scholarship.
Deadline for the Application
The completed application materials must be in our hands by February 12, 2018.
