In recognition of the financial barriers to legal education that many students from underrepresented backgrounds face, the Financial Support branch of UCLI’s “Promoting Legal Education to Diverse Groups Everywhere” (PLEDGE) Program provides:
Direct scholarships for costs associated with entrance exams for law school and the legal profession (LSAT and Bar, see below);
Informational presentations at Utah’s educational institutions on financing education and legal education; and
Feedback and advice on student applications for financial aid, mock trial funding, and other scholarships and grants to support diverse and underprivileged students. See UCLI’s database of external scholarships here.
If you would like to get involved in UCLI’s Education Committee(s), email or donate now to help UCLI run these important programs.
