UCLA Law Fellows Central Valley Program
Established in 2013 with a grant from the California Bar Foundation, the UCLA Law Fellows Central Valley Program selects 20-to-30 Fellows through a competitive application process. Fellows attend two full-day Saturday Academies held virtually. The academies offer academic enrichment through law school‐level instruction, workshops on law school admissions, personal statements, financial aid, and counseling regarding preparation for the Law School Admissions Test. Additionally, practicing attorneys and judges from the local legal community provide insight into their respective practice areas and share their personal, academic and professional experiences.
The Central Valley Program is implemented by UCLA Law’s Academic Outreach Resource Center, under the leadership of Executive Director Leo Trujillo-Cox.
California’s Central Valley is one of the fastest growing regions of the state, but it is also one of the most underserved. The Law Fellows Program-Central Valley plays an important role in helping to increase the pool of attorneys and expand the delivery of legal services in the Central Valley.
