Thank you to everyone who donated to #GivingTuesday. We will continue to push to break barriers to entry!

In 2004, the MCCA established the Lloyd M. Johnson, Jr. Scholarship (“LMJ Scholarship”) program to nurture the academic and professional careers of outstanding diverse law students and advance 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.

It’s partners like you that make this program possible. Whether you’re just starting your legal career or have risen to the top ranks of your company, whether you came to this country as a small child or your ancestors have been here for thousands of years, we are all here in service of a common goal: to create a corporate America that actually looks like America. Together we can put forward a positive, galvanizing vision and provide a path for these students. Together we can break down barriers to entry that prevent diverse candidates from succeeding in corporate America and provide scholarship and professional development opportunities that ensure their success. Together we can advance diversity, inclusion and equity in the legal profession.

The video below highlights the journeys of three LMJ Scholars: Destiny Dike, Felipe Hernandez, and Keli Huang. Learn how your donations have impacted their lives and their career trajectory.
