ASSOCIATION OF CORPORATE COUNSEL, Southern California
DIVERSITY BAR EXAM PREP COURSE STIPEND/SCHOLARSHIP

Application Instructions and Eligibility Requirements

Background and Purpose:

ACC-SoCal believes that it is incumbent upon the legal community to assist in alleviating the economic burden faced by financially-challenged minority students as each student prepares for the California Bar Exam and a future in the legal profession.  To help students resolve this burden, the ACC-SoCal scholarship program pays for a limited number of California Bar Exam review courses for minority students that might have otherwise had to forgo taking such courses.  A limited number of recipients will be selected from applications received from qualified students who demonstrate high moral character and financial need.  

Eligibility:

Eligibility is limited to full-time and part-time minority law students who (a) experienced financial hardship during their law school career and may have to forgo taking a bar review course if not for this program, (b) will graduate in spring 2020 or fall 2020 with a JD from an ABA-accredited law school in ACC-SoCal’s designated region (i.e., Los Angeles, Orange, Ventura, Santa Barbara, Riverside, and San Bernardino counties), and (c) registered (including Moral Character Application submission) to take the California Bar Exam in July 2020 or February 2021.

How to Apply:

CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD A COPY OF THE APPLICATION FORM.  Please provide complete, detailed answers to the application questions and all of the required attachments in a single envelope.  Please return your completed application along with the required supporting documentation set forth below to:

     ACC-SoCal Diversity Committee – Scholarships
     c/o Resources Global
     1000 Wilshire Blvd., Ste. 1600
     Los Angeles, CA  90017
 

Applications must be typed in 12-point typeface and postmarked no later than March 2, 2020, for our receipt no later than March 5, 2020.  In the alternative, students may e-mail submissions for our receipt no later than 11:59 p.m. Pacific Time March 5, 2020, or send questions to [email protected].  (Due to the volume of entries, ACC-SoCal may not acknowledge receipt of applications.)

Selection Criteria:

ACC-SoCal will award such scholarships on the basis of minority status, financial need, moral character, academic achievement, and community involvement.

ACC-SoCal will take reasonable steps to safeguard confidential information received from applicants, using measures not less protective that those that ACC-SoCal uses to protect its own information of a like nature.
