On Monday, Sept. 22, from 11 am to 1 pm, the UDC David A. Clarke School of Law will hold a meeting for those interested in knowing more about the Advocate for Justice Scholarship Program, described in detail below, through which up to 20 students per year for the next 3 years will be offered a tuition-free legal education. Please join us in Room 205, 2nd Floor, Building 39, at 4200 Connecticut Ave., NW. A light lunch will be served. Please feel free to forward this e-mail. Thank you!


Dear Friends,

Is there someone you know who would make excellent legal advocate, but who may neither be attracted to, nor is able to afford, a traditional legal education? We write in the hope that you will share with your members and colleagues the enclosed information on the University of the District of Columbia David A. Clarke School of Law (UDC-DCSL) Advocate for Justice Scholarship (AFJ) program, which will provide up to 20 full three-year tuition scholarships per year for members of incoming classes in 2009, 2010 and 2011.

The Advocate for Justice scholarship is specifically designed to enable those who seek a law degree to further public service goals to graduate without the crippling debt that can make public service salaries untenable.

UDC-DCSL is a different kind of law school - a racially and age-diverse, clinically-oriented, fully accredited public interest law school in Washington, DC. Each year, UDC-DCSL students provide over 85,000 hours of free legal service to low-income Washingtonians, non-profit law firms, community organizations, judges, and District and federal government agencies. Each and every UDC-DCSL student provides a minimum of 700 hours of carefully supervised clinical legal service to our most vulnerable citizens and important public interest causes.

The successful Advocate for Justice Scholarship recipient's history will reflect a deep commitment to justice and the public interest, as well as academic excellence as evidenced by grades, publications, professional experience, academic recommendations and LSAT scores. To apply for the scholarship, prospective students must complete a standard application for admission AND an Advocate for Justice Scholarship application, which consists of a simple form plus a 500-750 word personal statement demonstrating that the applicant has been an advocate for justice and describing how s/he will make use of a UDC David A. Clarke School of Law degree in furtherance of the interests of justice.

We ask your assistance in spreading the word about this educational opportunity to potentially interested students. If you have any questions about the program or the School of Law, please do not hesitate to contact met.

Thank you for your consideration!

Sincerely,

Joe Libertelli

The UDC-DCSL Advocate for Justice Program

Information on the University of the District of Columbia David A. Clarke School of Law (UDC-DCSL) Advocate for Justice program (AFJ) can be found at http://www.law.udc.edu/prospective/afj.html. The Advocate for Justice application, which supplements the standard application for the J.D. program, can be found at http://www.law.udc.edu/prospective/p...ustice_app.pdf. To sign up for the contact list for the AFJ program, please go to http://www.law.udc.edu/prospective/afj_signup.html and fill out the form there. To find out more about the School of Law generally, go to http://www.law.udc.edu/. There's lots to read there, including many back editions of the School of Law's publication, The Advocate, which can give the reader a real flavor for the kinds of work and activities undertaken by students, staff, faculty and friends of the School of Law.

The AFJ program offers full tuition three-year scholarships to up to 20 prospective students each year whose history reflects a deep commitment to justice and the public interest, and who are also excellent students in terms of more traditional indices of academic prowess, including grades, advanced degrees, publications, professional experience, and LSAT scores.

To sign up for the LSAT, please visit http://www.lsat.org/

October, 2008 http://www.lsat.org/LSAT/test-dates-us-oct08.asp;

December, 2008 http://www.lsat.org/LSAT/test-dates-us-dec08.asp;

February, 2009 http://www.lsat.org/LSAT/test-dates-us-feb09.asp.

Since the Advocate for Justice scholarships are awarded on a rolling basis, the earlier you apply, the better. The School of Law application deadline is March 15. I encourage you to apply early, completing your application with your LSAT results when they become available. My advice to those of you who have not taken the LSAT is to, at minimum, purchase a review/work book and study it carefully. You should, at minimum, completely understand the format of the test, the various types of questions asked, and use the practice questions provided to familiarize yourself to the extent possible.
