Student support: Attract promising students, and graduate lawyers ready to practice, serve, and lead
Competition for the most promising law students is intense among leading law schools, and scholarships remain a dominant factor. We must provide generous financial aid to attract the talented and diverse students who can become the next generation of lawyer-leaders our law firms, businesses, governments, and public interest organizations need. Equally important, as part of a great public university, this Law School has a responsibility to make a first-rate legal education accessible and affordable.
With new funding, we will:
- Ease debt burdens and strengthen our ability to enroll outstanding students who otherwise might be unable to afford a legal education
- Create scholarships focused on diversity, leadership, public service, and international perspectives
- Support students entering public service through extensive programming, individualized career counseling, formative summer work experiences, and postgraduate fellowships
- Enhance the resources available to recruit and support students and advance their professional development as they transition to successful careers
