Scholarships

The Justinian Society of Lawyers Endowment Fund provides annual scholarships to students attending area law schools. Last year, we afforded 14 scholarships totaling in excess of $40,000 (including the law schools matching funds).

We are primarily concerned with providing awards to qualified applicants demonstrating need, we require some assurance that the individuals who are awarded scholarships will complete their legal studies.

Certified transcripts of law school enrollment and grades, together with a black and white photo of the applicant must accompany the written application. All applicants are additionally required to indicate whether or not they previously have been awarded a scholarship by the Justinian Society of Lawyers.
