The Legal Marketing Association (LMA) fosters the personal and professional development of its members through educational opportunities at the international and regional level. Over the years we have offered scholarships in the Los Angeles region as a means to empower individuals whose firms are unable to or decline to sponsor their membership, and to individuals between jobs or looking to start a career in legal marketing, including college and graduate students. Therefore, the LMA Los Angeles Steering Committee along with the LMA West regional chapter have developed the LMA Los Angeles Educational Scholarship Program to grant one individual half-year membership to the Legal Marketing Association with Los Angeles regional affiliation, as well as registration fees for all Los Angeles area programs and events, including our annual Continuing Marketing Education (CME) conference. Each scholarship is valued at over $600. Registration for the LMA International Conference and other chapter events, as well as any fees associated with transportation to or parking at LMA events are not included.
Applicants must complete the attached application form and provide relevant personal and professional information, including narrative answers to a series of questions, a current resume, two professional references and a letter of recommendation. Applications are due by 6:00pm PST on June 5, 2017. The scholarship recipients will be notified of their selection on or before June 20, 2017.

If selected, the recipient is strongly encouraged to attend most of the scheduled programs and to be an active member of one the Los Angeles Steering Committee groups.
The Selection Committee will be comprised of three members of LMA-LA, including at least one member of the LMA-LA Steering Committee. Although the Selection Committee will attempt to award one scholarship annually, it maintains the right to award no scholarships, depending on the applications received and/or the association’s financial reserve status. Committee members with applicants from their firm or company will refrain from voting on that individual.
