In 2004, MCCA established the Lloyd M. Johnson, Jr. Scholarship Program (“LMJ Scholarship”). 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.
