Civil Right Law: Marshall-Motley Scholarship Program (MMSP)

Join the next generation of Civil Rights Lawyers! 

Named in honor of the legendary civil rights attorney and LDF founder Thurgood Marshall, and iconic civil rights litigator Constance Baker Motley, the Marshall-Motley Scholars Program (MMSP) is a groundbreaking commitment to endow the South with the next generation of civil rights lawyers trained to provide legal advocacy of unparalleled excellence.

The MMSP will offer 50 aspiring civil rights lawyers:

  • A full law school scholarship for tuition, room, board, and incidentals to alleviate the debt burden that can prevent future lawyers from pursuing a career in racial justice;
  • Summer internships at LDF and other national civil rights organizations with offices in the South to begin their training as civil rights lawyers early in their law school careers;
  • A two-year postgraduate fellowship at a national, regional, or local civil rights organization with a racial justice law practice in the South; and
  • Access to special trainings sponsored by the LDF and the National Academy of Sciences.

In return, the Scholars will commit to serving as civil rights lawyers based in the South, engaged in a law practice focused on achieving racial justice for 8 years following the conclusion of their fellowship. The MMSP will continue to offer support for the newly emerging civil rights lawyers as they develop their practice and form a distinguished regional network of legal practitioners.
