Equal Access to Justice
NAWJ initiated the Equal Access to Justice Scholarship
Program to award scholarships to law students who have demonstrated
a sustained commitment to diversity and equality in the system of justice.
The scholarships are presented at NAWJ District events across the country.
We are hopeful that the benefits of the scholarship program will far
transcend the financial benefit to the individual students. The program
also promises to create enduring partnerships between NAWJ Districts and
their local area law schools, and between NAWJ and new generations
of women judges to come.
Justice Sandra Day O'Connor
The Justice Sandra Day O'Connor Scholarship was
established by the National Association of Women Judges in 2006 to honor
the legacy of the first woman to serve on the United States Supreme Court.
Justice O'Connor's life story and extraordinary professional achievements
illustrate three core values: scholarship, leadership, and commitment to
public service and equal justice. This scholarship will honor
and perpetuate Justice O'Connor's legacy by annually recognizing the achievements
and commitment of a law student who exemplifies the values that have guided Justice
O'Connor throughout her extraordinary career.
