About La Voz
La Voz is the Hispanic/ Latinx Law Student Association at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas William S. Boyd School of Law. Our primary focus is to empower and promote the success of law students with backgrounds that are not traditionally represented in the legal profession. We are most known for the Huellas mentorship program. Huellas, “Footprints” in Spanish, is a nationally recognized and award-winning mentorship program that pairs high school students, undergraduate students, and law students with local attorneys from across different areas of practice. Huellas provides students with support and opportunities to learn about the legal profession. Through Huellas, La Voz works to increase diversity in the legal profession.
What Your Donation Will Fund
To continue the growth and success that students receive through their involvement in Huellas, we need your help. Your donations will give us the ability to provide Huellas participants with scholarships for the LSAT, textbooks for school, tuition, and bar exam preparation materials. This year the Huellas program has over 200 participants, the most participants since the inception of the program. Huellas participants range in age and educational background from freshmen in high school to third-year law students. Your generous donations will help these students continue their path to success in the legal field.
How Scholarships Will Be Awarded
In order to qualify for a scholarship, La Voz members and Huellas participants will have to submit an application. Applications will be reviewed and chosen by an independent committee of local attorneys. Scholarships will be awarded at the Huellas Closing Reception in April 2021.
**Contributions are tax-deductible as allowed by law. All donors will receive a gift receipt from the UNLV Foundation.**
