College of Law Taft Scholars Program Match
Gifts made to the College of Law Taft Scholars Program will be matched by an anonymous donor, up to $50,000.
The Taft Scholars Program reflects our history and tradition of excellence and innovation. William Howard Taft (class of 1880) was one of our most storied graduates. As you may know, he was the only person to serve as a U.S. President and Chief Justice of the United States Supreme Court (as well as dean of Cincinnati Law). Taft also is credited with transforming the federal courts into a modern and efficient system, as well as providing the Supreme Court with its iconic building in Washington, D.C. Taft exemplifies the great value Cincinnati Law places on b ridging theory and practice to make lasting change. The students we identify as Taft Scholars are the next generation of transformative leaders. Taft Scholars will receive a scholarship covering full resident tuition and fees for three years of law school, amongst other benefits such as a faculty advisor, alumni mentor, and more.

Law Class of 2009 Challenge
If 20 gifts are made to The Legal Access Project @ Cincinnati Law (TLAP), we will unlock an additional $200 gift from alumni Brandon Craig, Law ’09 and Pramila Kamath, Law ’09.
As the College of Law’s Class of 2009 prepares to celebrate its 10 year reunion May 24 and 25, our university is celebrating 200 years of success! Join us in supporting Cincinnati Law’s newest venture, the Legal Access Project and help our alma mater make an impact on UC’s next 200 years.
The University of Cincinnati College of Law has been working to design a program to address civil legal needs of lower-to-middle income people by launching The Legal Access Project @ Cincinnati Law (TLAP). TLAP will be a unique and innovative law firm – one of a handful in the U.S. and the only one of its kind in Ohio -- owned by the University of Cincinnati and operated by UC College of Law. This program will help to narrow the justice gap in Southwest Ohio; is based on national “best practice” studies of similar centers; will provide a post-graduate practice experience for UC Law graduates; will be an experiential learning laboratory for current students; and projects financial self-sufficiency by the end of its third year of operations.
