Our scholarship program was established in 1998 to reaffirm a commitment to diversity in legal education and the legal profession.
Most scholarships involve a substantial three-year commitment to worthy qualified students. The vast majority of scholarships awarded are $10,000 yearly.
This program was created in response to the passage of SP-1, the University of California Regent's resolution to end affirmative action and race-based admissions at UC Schools.
Since the program was established, we have awarded more than 1.7 million dollars in scholarships to 93 students.
JDC seeks the assistance of law firms, corporations, and individuals who are willing to help sponsor a scholarship.
You can also mentor a law student scholarship recipient by assisting them with writing, editing and research skills.
