About the Legal Opportunity Scholarship Fund
For nearly two decades, the ABA Business Law Section has been committed to supporting the ABA Legal Opportunity Scholarship Fund, a pivotal force for bringing about a more diverse and inclusive legal profession. You now have the opportunity to join our efforts and double the impact of the Section's support.
This year, the Section will contribute up to $20,000 in matching support to the Scholarship Fund when members, like you, make a charitable donation.
Each year, up to 20 incoming diverse law students receive $15,000 of financial assistance over the course of their three years in law school. To date, 380 diverse students from across the country have received the Scholarship. These exceptional recipients have overcome adversity, proven themselves through academic success and public service, and demonstrated the tenacity to excel within the legal profession.
