The America Bar Association's Legal Opportunity Scholarship grants twenty incoming diverse law students with $15,000 of financial assistance over the course of their three years in an ABA-accredited law school.  Applicants must be entering first-year law students and also U.S. citizens or permanent residents. 

Since the program's inception, more than fifty law schools across the U.S. have been represented among scholarship recipients, and former scholars have practiced at some of the most prestigious firms and organizations in the country.  All scholars have committed themselves to public service either prior to, during, or after law school.
