A major role of the Association is awarding one or more scholarships to second year law students each year. The winners must demonstrate aptitude, achievement, public service, financial need, and commitment to the study of law and the legal profession. The students are chosen from law schools on a rotation of geographical areas around the United States.
The scholarships, all of which the Association attempts to maintain at least $5,000, are then presented to the winners at the Annual Meeting in August.
Below are the recipients from prior years.
