National Bar Association Judicial Council Scholarship: The Judicial Council’s mission objectives include increasing the presence of judges of color in the Federal and State judiciaries. We realize to accomplish that goal, we must increase the pipeline of minority lawyers who will become judges. Only 5% of lawyers in this country are African-American, even though we are 13.4% of the population. That number has not increased in a decade. The first step in the lawyer pipeline, of course, is the obtaining of a law degree. The cost of a legal education has grown tremendously over the years, and we know that minority students in particular are in need of funding to complete their legal education. Therefore, in keeping with our mission and objectives, we have established a scholarship program to award eligible people who are members of a racial or ethnic minority that has been underrepresented in the legal profession.  October 29, 2021 $5,000 Visit Website
