Applications are now being accepted for the Lawyers Club Women and the Law Project Scholarship at Thomas Jefferson School of Law. Thomas Jefferson School of Law established this scholarship in collaboration with Lawyers Club, 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 gender equality in our society. We were very proud to have Alyssa Casiple selected by Lawyers Club as the 2014 recipient, and Patricia Ojeda as the 2015 recipients for the Scholarship.
The scholarship provides $2,000 to a Thomas Jefferson School of Law student who demonstrates support of 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 (29 units minimum). Please be certain you meet these requirements before submitting an application. The scholarship is to be used for tuition and/or books. Also, please check with the Financial Assistance Office to determine whether this scholarship would affect your financial assistance status.
The scholarship will be officially awarded at the Lawyers Club annual Holiday Luncheon in December. Thomas Jefferson School of Law demonstrates its support of Lawyers Club as a “Benefactor” and will host a table at the Holiday Luncheon, at which our scholarship recipient will sit with Dean Tom Guernsey and/or other members of the Thomas Jefferson School of Law Community and be recognized during the program.
Applications for the 2016 Lawyers Club Women and the Law Project Scholarship at Thomas Jefferson School of Law are due on Monday, Sept. 19, 2016 by 3 p.m. The applications will be screened by a Thomas Jefferson School of Law committee and the most qualified of the applications forwarded for evaluation by the Lawyers Club Scholarship Committee.
