How to Apply to Law Firm Scholarships?

Law firm scholarships help to offset the cost of college or law school. They are available from large and small law firms and in many niche fields. Business law, criminal law, immigration and tax law are a few examples.

To get a scholarship from a law firm, you need to meet their criteria. These vary as some law firms want to help certain kinds of students. For example, Veterans, women and minorities qualify for the scholarships.

But often they invite any undergraduate or law student (1L, 2L, or 3L) to apply. Law students must attend an accredited USA college, university, or law school. Apart from these criteria, a scholarship may come with a few qualifiers. They will also look at your GPA and record of community service.

Along with this information, an application may ask for reference letters. These attest to your character and may come from employers, professors or mentors.

To narrow the field of applicants, a law firm may also ask you to write an essay or cover letter. You could explain your future goals or point of view on a legal matter. You might also need to describe why a specific type of law interests you.  So, if you have any related studies, internships or experiences, these may help you stand out.

How do Scholarships Pay for College?
