Maryland HBCUs Team Up With the University of Baltimore School of Law

scales_of_justiceThe University of Baltimore School of Law has instituted a program in conjunction with Maryland’s four historically Black universities to increase the number of African American students in legal studies.

The Fannie Angelos Program for Academic Excellence has two different initiatives. The Baltimore Scholars Program offers eight students from the HBCUs participation in a two-week, law school boot camp. The students complete law school assignments, meet with lawyers and judges, and visit law firms. Students who complete the program and have a 3.5 grade point average and score at least 152 on the Law School Admission Tests (LSAT) receive a full-tuition scholarship to the law school.

The second part of the program offers 80 students a grant to cover all but the first $100 in tuition costs for a semester-long test-prep course for the LSAT.

The four Maryland HBCUs are Bowie State University, University of Maryland Eastern Shore, Morgan State University, and Coppin State University.
