APPLY FOR the 2020 ¡ANDALE! SCHOLARSHIP
Admission to law school is a highly competitive process. One of the most heavily weighted portions of a law school application is the applicant's score on the standardized Law School Admission Test (LSAT). Evidence shows that an applicant's LSAT test score improves substantially when they take an LSAT preparation course.
The Las Vegas Latino Bar Association is committed to helping diversify the legal profession and increase the number of Latino lawyers serving our community. Through discussions with various education professionals, members of the LBA Board of Directors learned that a significant barrier for many Latinos who wish to pursue a legal education is their inability to afford an LSAT preparation course. With this in mind, the LBA founded the ¡Andale! 5K to raise funds for the ¡Andale! Scholarship and provide financial support for college students and graduates to pay for LSAT preparation courses.
The ¡Andale! scholarship will provide winners the following: a Kaplan LSAT Prep course ($1,299 value), one LSAT examination application fee ($200 value), the Credential Assembly Service fee ($195 value), and one LSAT law school report ($45 value). The LBA will work with the awardees and tender payment for fees directly to Kaplan and the Law School Admissions Council (LSAC).
The application period for the 2020 ¡Andale! Scholarship is now open! Applications are due by 11:59 pm on September 13, 2020. Please follow the instructions on the application form.
