The Thurgood Marshall School of Law has available emergency funds to assist law students and May 2020 graduates who have encountered a temporary financial hardship due to unforeseen circumstances. The Professor Constance Fain Student Emergency Loan Fund and the Thurgood Marshall School of Law Student Emergency Fund provide limited funding to students who have exhausted their available options. Consideration for emergency funding will be made by the Office of Student Affairs in collaboration with the Office of Financial Aid after review of a completed application submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org. The TMSL Law Student Emergency Fund Application can be accessed on the Student Affairs webpage.
Thank you to Professor Constance and Dr. Herbert Fain for their continued support, financial and otherwise, to TMSL students as well as to faculty, staff, and alumni who, in giving back and paying forward through this fund, reflect the “Thurgood Way” of "Protect It. Improve It. Pass It On."
Thank you to AccessLex Institute, which by its generous donation of $25,000 has made it possible for the Law School to offer emergency funds to its students.
