Qualified students may now apply for the 2013 Lawyers Club Women & the Law Project Scholarship at Thomas Jefferson School of Law. TJSL established this scholarship in collaboration with Lawyers Club of San Diego, a non-profit specialty bar association seeking to advance the status of women in the law, to support and improve the administration of justice and to promote equality of women and men in our society. Catrina Skor ‘11 was selected by Lawyers Club as the first recipient of this scholarship in 2010, Elizabeth Knowles ’12 as the 2011 recipient and Amy Louttit, who will graduate this December, as last year’s recipient.
The scholarship provides $2,000 to a TJSL student who best personifies the mission of Lawyers Club, is academically among the top 50% of her or his law school class and has completed one full year of law school (30 units minimum). Students should be certain they meet these requirements before submitting an application. The scholarship is to be used for tuition and/or books. Also, students should check with TJSL’s Financial Assistance Office to determine if receipt of this scholarship would impact their financial assistance.
The scholarship will be officially awarded at the Lawyers Club annual Holiday Luncheon in December, which is attended by members of the local bench and other members of San Diego’s legal community. Thomas Jefferson School of Law demonstrates its support of Lawyers Club as a “Benefactor” and will have a table at the Holiday Luncheon, at which our scholarship recipient will sit with Dean Tom Guernsey and/or other members of the TJSL community.
Applications for the 2013 Lawyers Club Women and the Law Project Scholarship at Thomas Jefferson School of Law are due on Tuesday, September 24, by 3 p.m. The completed application should be converted to a PDF and emailed, along with a resume, to Faculty Assistant Randy Ward at firstname.lastname@example.org by the deadline. Applications will be evaluated by a TJSL Lawyers Club Scholarship Committee and the most qualified of the applications forwarded to the Lawyers Club for final evaluation.
