This minority scholarship grants 20 incoming diverse law students with $15,000 of financial assistance over the course of their three years in law school.
Former American Bar Association President, William G. Paul initiated the scholarship during his tenure to encourage racially and ethnically diverse students to attend law school.
Since its inception, 200 students from across the U.S. have received the American Bar Association Legal Opportunity Scholarship. These exceptional recipients have overcome adversity, proven themselves through academic success and public service, and demonstrated the tenacity to excel within the practice of law in the U.S.
