LMJ SCHOLARSHIP

In 2004, MCCA established the LMJ Scholarship Program and awarded the first scholarships in 2005. 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 careers.

Since its inception, the LMJ Scholarship has awarded over $3.7 million in scholarships to 228 students, of which 40% identify as men and 60% identify as women.

In memory of Robert Bostrom

In 2020, we lost Bob Bostrom, whom throughout his career exemplified what it means to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion in the legal profession. Bob was a relentless champion for organizations like ours. One of his last acts of service was generously donating the proceeds from his funeral to the MCCA. Bob was an ally at all stages of his life and we miss him dearly.
