LMJ Scholarship Program

In 2004, the MCCA established the Lloyd M. Johnson, Jr. Scholarship (“LMJ Scholarship”) program. The LMJ Scholarship program seeks to nurture the academic and professional careers of outstanding law students and advancing the diversity pipeline to the legal profession. The LMJ Scholarship Program provides financial support to incoming first-year law students pursuing a juris doctorate degree. Since its inception, the LMJ Scholarship program has awarded over $3.5 million in scholarships to nearly 200 students of which 39% are men and 61% are women.

“The mentorship and sponsorship aspects [of the LMJ Scholarship] are invaluable. Being in law is so much about who your mentors and sponsors are - their guidance can have an outsized impact on your career. I found those relationships in my LMJ sponsors at DuPont. You can't build those types of career-long relationships without somewhere to start and the LMJ scholarship helped me to do that. It's been the greatest gift that the LMJ scholarship has given me."
