CSU Cleveland-Marshall College of Law has long supported women and minorities, by being the first law school in Ohio to admit women and one of the first to admit minorities. For 123 years, we have lifted up our students and alumni regardless of age, race, sex, gender, sexual orientation, religion, or disability. Lawyers of Color has recognized CSU C|M|LAW as a 2020 Best Regional School for the Midwest for black students.
We know we cannot rest on our laurels, and must continue to work to eliminate the many barriers BIPOC and students of color may experience in the legal field. We recognize that the largest hurdle can often be a financial one. With this, Dean Lee Fisher has established the Living Justice Scholarship Fund. This scholarship fund will support students with evidenced financial need, with a preference for graduates of HBCUs and/or students whose applications evidence an interest in social justice work.
Please join us in supporting these future lawyers and leaders in social and racial justice.
