Rosenthal Bar Exam Scholarship

http://www.calbarfoundation.org

newLogo_230The Rosenthal Bar Exam Scholarship Program recognizes outstanding graduating California law students with financial need who are embarking on careers in public service law by providing financial support for costs related to taking the California Bar Exam. Winners will receive California Bar/Bri Law Review Bar Exam review courses and/or $2,000 in cash to help defray fees and related expenses of taking the California Bar Exam.

Through this Program, the Foundation is committed to supporting law students pursuing a career in public interest law by providing critical financial assistance to help students cover expenses between graduating from law school and passing the bar exam. As one of the only scholarship programs in the country that helps public interest law students pay bar exam expenses, the Rosenthal Bar Exam Scholarship supports the pipeline of young California lawyers entering the legal profession as public interest attorneys.

The Scholarship is named in honor of Imelda Rosenthal, an émigré from Guatemala. Upon her arrival to the U.S., she learned the language and customs and soon was running a successful company. Reflecting upon her early days in America, Imelda began using a portion of her business' profits to help other young immigrants. After passing away from cancer-related illness, her family established a memorial fund, which led to the creation of the Rosenthal Bar Exam Scholarship Program. The Program is made possible by the generous support of law firms, voluntary donations from members of the California Bar, including prior scholarship recipients, and the Rosenthal family.
