LMJ Scholarship

In 2004, MCCA established the LMJ Scholarship Program. The LMJ Scholarship is a diversity pipeline program that seeks to nurture the academic and professional careers of outstanding law students. The scholarship is open to women and diverse students who have: been accepted to an ABA-accredited law school on a full-time basis; an outstanding or promising academic record; an interest in corporate law; demonstrated community service and leadership qualities; a financial need; and a commitment to diversity, inclusion and equity. The LMJ Scholarship grants scholarships of $10,000 to students for their first year of law school. In addition to financial support, LMJ scholars are connected with peers, alumni, and mentors, who are available to provide professional support, such as guidance on addressing academic or personal obstacles that arise over the course of their legal career.

Since its inception, the LMJ Scholarship has awarded over $3.5 million in scholarships to over 200 students, of which 40% identify as men and 60% identify as women.

This year, MCCA will award up to 6 scholarships.

“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."

“The most important thing is to remember where you’ve come from because it’s critical to try to bring your whole self to legal practice. The only way that you’re going to survive and thrive in practice is to remember your core values and the hard work that has gotten you to law school. Don’t forget those values because they’ll be sources of strength for you to rely upon as you navigate your career."
