Who We Are

The Dallas Bar Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization focused on empowering both the existing and future Dallas legal community through educational and charitable initiatives. The Foundation provides scholarships, clerkships and educational opportunities supporting the next generation of lawyers and provides grants which support charitable legal initiatives to improve the lives of others utilizing the justice system.  The Foundation has funded over seventy-five multi-year tuition scholarships, allowing outstanding minority law students to attend SMU Dedman School of Law, UNT Dallas College of Law and Texas A&M University School of Law and complete a legal education many would have thought beyond reach.
