"I am so grateful to have received the 2022 Bar Exam Scholarship through the Center for Legal Inclusiveness. As a first-generation law school graduate and the daughter of an immigrant, my path to law school was filled with doubts and financial anxiety. The scholarship allowed me to intensely focus on the Colorado Bar Exam throughout the summer, without worrying about the cost of the exam or the study program. I truly believe the scholarship helped set me up for success and ultimately pass the Bar Exam my first attempt! "
- Zoe E Nagasing, 2022 Bar Exam Scholarship Recipient 

"Dream Team 2.0 is a fantastic program!  Two of the hardest aspects of judicial applications are (a) not knowing at first who you can turn to for help with your application or with interview preparation; and (b) feeling afraid to reach out to folks you don’t know because you think you will be bothering them.  Having a judicial coach to guide you solves both of those challenges – it was so valuable to have a dedicated coach I could always count on, show drafts to, and practice interviews with while knowing I would receive helpful and non-judgmental feedback.  Dream Team 2.0 also helped me connect and find support with other diverse attorneys who were walking the same path and experiencing similar struggles, which is absolutely essential to navigating the emotional roller coaster that is the judicial application process.  I can’t recommend this program highly enough!"

-Judge Katharine Lum, 2021-22 Dream Team 2.0 Participant

"The 2022 Diversity Bar Scholarship from the Center for Legal Inclusiveness provided me with much needed financial support so that I could register for and focus on the Bar. As a recent survivor of domestic violence, I struggled to find the money to cover my medical bills and to cover the costs associated with the Bar and Bar preparation. Without the CLI’s scholarship, I would not have been able to take the Bar or move forward with my legal career. Thank you to all of those at CL| who helped create this scholarship and who continue to fund this scholarship. I am deeply grateful for CLI’s generosity."

-Blair Garnett, 2022 Bar Exam Scholarship Recipient
