Current Projects

The Diversity in the Profession Committee aims to strengthen and diversify the pipeline of individuals entering the legal profession and encourage involvement in the State Bar of Texas by familiarizing students with State Bar activities. By helping defray the financial burden of preparing for the Texas Bar Exam, this scholarship facilitates the transition into the legal profession for law students from backgrounds traditionally under-represented in the profession. Third-year law school students who attend an ABA-accredited Texas law school and who are preparing for the Texas Bar Exam are eligible for this scholarship.
