Law Students play an important role in FBANC, and FBANC welcomes law students’ participation and ideas. FBANC supports law students in a number of ways including its annual scholarships and mentor-mentee program.
Each year, FBANC presents scholarships to qualified law students who have shown a commitment to issues involving the Filipino-American community.
Current law students in good academic standing and those admitted to law school for the academic year are eligible to apply for the FBANC Legal Scholarships. FBANC historically has granted two scholarships, the FBANC Scholarship and the Raymond L. Ocampo Jr. Scholarship. Last year, each scholarship was awarded in the amount of $2,500.
Don’t miss out on this Scholarship Opportunity!
If you belong to any specialty or minority bar associations, or know any suitable applicants, the Broussard foundation is looking for need based scholarship applicants who could use $5,000 for law school. Preference is for local folks and or those attending local law schools. The winners will be honored at the alameda county board of supervisors meeting on may 7 with lunch to follow. The deadline is april 30 and the application can be found at:

FBANC is pleased to announce the 2013 FBANC Group-Based Mentorship Program. The Program is intended to:
(1) foster relationships between FBANC law students and both junior and senior attorneys, providing the student with a variety of perspectives on law school, the bar, and the practice of law; and
(2) foster relationships between more experienced attorneys and junior attorneys who may be new to the practice or who are traversing the critical first few years of practice and would gain from the guidance.
