Law Preview Scholarships Sponsored By The National Diversity Scholarship Fund
Top law firms understand that their lawyers must be diverse in order to best serve their clients. That is why many top 100 law firms and companies have invested heavily to improve diversity among practicing attorneys and the legal community in general. These law firms understand that improving diversity in the legal profession requires more than just hiring and promoting diverse attorneys within their firms. It also requires a sustained commitment to increase the pipeline of diverse students who earn strong grades in law school and are, therefore, positioned to compete for the most sought-after jobs and become the profession's next generation of leaders and decision-makers.
Law Preview (the nation's largest law school prep course) has teamed up with some of the country's largest law firms and companies to provide Law Preview Scholarships to select members of our entering class through it's National Diversity Scholarship Fund (NDSF). The NDSF has generously agreed to help entering students prepare for the unique challenges they will face during their 1L year at UCONN Law by paying the cost of tuition for a law school prep course.
