Attention 1L and 2L Law Students!
Donald L. Snow Scholarship Application Deadline April 24, 2015!
LGLA offers the Donald L. Snow Scholarship, which is awarded annually to deserving area law students. The Donald L. Snow Scholarship was made possible by a generous bequest from LGLA member, Donald Snow. For several years Mr. Snow was President of the Lambda Democratic Club in Long Beach and helped obtain direct financial assistance for people living with AIDS. Through these efforts and others, Mr. Snow served as a leader and spokesperson for lesbian and gay rights.
Because of this gift and this continuing endowment, LGLA is able to award scholarships to locally enrolled law students who demonstrate financial need and either (1) are lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender, or (2) have demonstrated an ongoing commitment to the promotion of the civil rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender persons.
Applicants for the Donald L. Snow scholarship must be enrolled and in good academic standing at an accredited law school located in Los Angeles County or Orange County at the time of the application and at the time of the award, in Fall 2015.
The application is available here.
Law Student Social and Networking Events
Each year LGLA hosts two special social events specifically for LGBT law students. Each is designed to provide a safe, congenial setting to encourage law students to socialize, exchange ideas and network with working attorneys who happen to be LGLA members. Both events are free to law students whether you are an LGLA member or not.
- The annual LGLA Summer Associates Reception
- The Rand Schrader Law Student Reception in the Fall
Both of these great events are enthusiastically attended by numerous LGLA members and non-members and give you, the law student ample opportunity to make contacts, forge new friendships and alliances and become more informed about social, economic and political matters that directly affect our community.
Law students are encouraged to become LGLA members so that they have access to the full spectrum of LGLA educational and social activities, advocacy campaigns and related organizations throughout Southern California.
