First and foremost, thank you for being a valuable alum!
Many of our alumni are practicing, or retired, attorneys and judges. Even our alumni who chose a career path outside of the law understand the financial burden caused by taking time off from work to study for the bar examination. Many of our students cannot afford to take off just two weeks to study.
With the generous help of alumni like you, we created a Bar Aid Scholarship to financially aid students studying for the bar. We will look at first-time bar takers cumulative GPA and financial need when determining the recipients of the scholarships. Our hope is through alumni and community donations, we can offer a minimum of four $2,000.00 scholarships each year, two for the July bar examinees and two for the February bar examinees. All donations received go directly to the Bar Aid Scholarship. Our projected date for the first scholarships is January 2024, though the date is contingent upon your help.

Thank you very much for your support!
