Baylor Law School is pleased to offer the prestigious Leon Jaworski Scholarship for Outstanding Undergraduate Advocates to incoming law students who have outstanding records in advocacy programs such as debate or mock trial. This scholarship is a full-tuition scholarship and is renewable for the second and third years of law school if the recipient continuously maintains a cumulative grade point average of 2.00 and participates in Baylor Law's award-winning interscholastic advocacy program.
A 1926 graduate of Baylor Law School, Leon Jaworski perhaps will be most remembered for his roles as Special Prosecutor during the Watergate crisis and as founding partner of the international law firm of Fulbright & Jaworski LLP. The path chosen by Leon Jaworski took him to a place in American jurisprudence where his legal accomplishments will not be forgotten and will be remembered by Baylor Law School.
The recipient will be chosen in April, but the deadlines are different for different entering quarters. For Spring applicants, the deadline is November 1.
