Public Interest/Public Service Bar Grants

The California Law Review Public Interest/Public Service Bar Grant is a bar scholarship of $2,000 awarded each year to graduating third-year law review editors pursuing public interest careers.

The California Law Review’s Bar Grant Scholarships seeks to assist those students serving low-income, disenfranchised, and underrepresented communities and individuals, and will consider applicants in either nonprofit or government settings that serve these goals. Grant recipients are selected by a selection panel of Berkeley Law faculty and are honored at our annual Alumni Banquet. 

Donating to the Public Interest/Public Service Bar Grant fundraiser will help ensure the financial stability of public interest or public service law students as they enter the legal profession.

Donations can be made year-round and electronically through our donation link. Thank you for your generosity!
