Law school is a great endeavor that most students often embrace with open arms and empty checkbooks. Luckily, there are a lot of scholarship resources available to help those that need financial aid. Every semester, however, too many students are often overlooked for scholarships due to their unusual circumstances and the lack of accessibility towards finding the financial means to attend law school. For this reason, we have compiled a list of resources of diverse scholarships for those who don't quite fit the common mold often needed to seek out financial aid.
