Are you a diverse student who will begin your 1L year at a California law school this Fall? If so, the California Bar Foundation wants to support you! Rising first-year law students are invited to apply the summer prior to commencing their first semester of law school.
The California Bar Foundation believes every Californian deserves access to justice. As the center of philanthropy for California' legal community, we work every day to build a better, more inclusive profession by investing in California' next generation of lawyers.
The California Bar Foundation\'s 1L Diversity Scholarship financially supports first-year California law students with the goal of furthering diversity in the legal profession. Diversity includes a broad array of backgrounds and life experiences, including students from groups or with skills or attributes that are underrepresented in the legal profession, and specifically including students from socially and economically disadvantaged backgrounds.
