Scholarships

Due to the extreme generosity of many donors, Trial Lawyers College has given thousands of scholarships to deserving students over the years. We treat the TLC Scholarship Fund as a ‘Pay It Forward’ program, hoping that donors who are able to ‘Pay it Forward’ to ensure another student can learn from TLC, and when that student is able, they will ‘Pay it Forward’ to another student in need, and on and on. It is a special honor for a donor to enable a fellow trial lawyer to experience the magic of TLC, and an added bonus to hope that eventually that gift will be passed along yet again.

TLC Sustaining Membership

For well over a decade, Trial Lawyers College alumni, friends and supporters have supported TLC through memberships in what was formerly called “The Ranch Club.” Members commit $100/month for ten years, typically paid by a convenient automatic withdrawal from their credit card or checking account.An annual $200.00 discount for a friend or colleague of a Sustaining Member to attend their first TLC Seminar. (Sustaining Member must email bookkeeper@triallawyerscollege.org with the name of their designee for this discount.)  

Since Trial Lawyers College left Wyoming, the name “Ranch Club” has lost its former significance. While TLC absolutely needs regular, consistent financial support from its alumni and supporters, that financial support is no longer directed to the tenancy maintenance of a ranch. Now, TLC needs that steady and reliable cash flow for other general operating needs: recovery from a pandemic year in which TLC could not present in-person programs; new programming in new venues moving forward; and savings for its future permanent home in which TLC plans to be an owner, not a tenant.

The F Warriors Alumni Board selected the new name for the former “Ranch Club”: TLC Sustaining Members. The new name expresses exactly what that monthly support from alumni and supporters does for TLC: it sustains the College, $100 per member per month, every month, for ten years. Those monthly payments are our alums’ steady and reliable commitment to the College – and the more alums who join as TLC Sustaining Members, the more reliable and consistent cash flow the College has for its current needs and future financial planning efforts.

A New Name for a Familiar Way to Support TLC

All contributions will continue to be used to advance Trial Lawyers College mission: to training and educating lawyers and judges who are committed to the jury system and to representing and obtaining justice for individuals: the poor, the injured, the forgotten, the voiceless, the defenseless and the damned, and to protecting the rights of such people from corporate and government oppression. In all of its activities, Trial Lawyers College will foster and nourish an open atmosphere of caring for people regardless of their race, age, creed, religion, national origin, physical abilities, gender or sexual orientation. We do not offer training for those lawyers who represent government, corporations, or large business interests. With admiration and gratitude from your TLC Board. – President John Sloan, VP Milton Grimes, Sec.
