Recent UIC Law Graduate Receives Over $10K in Scholarships to Fuel Legal Career
The Women’s Bar Foundation and the Diversity Scholarship Foundation are two organizations that have committed to the advancement of our UIC Law students. Recent graduate Kiesha Mull (JD ’22) is one of our stand-out students who has been able to capitalize on both opportunities as the most recent recipient of scholarship funds from both organizations.
Having served as the president of the Christian Legal Society and the First-Generation Law Student Association, participated in a moot court competition, and served on the Moot Court Executive Board, Mull attributes much of her law school success to being “taught by amazing, empathetic, caring, and brilliant professors.”
“Taken as a totality my law school journey has helped shape my future career by giving me the tools that I need to thrive and succeed,” Mull said.

“Women’s Bar Foundation Scholarship” – Women Bar Foundation
“The WBF seeks to honor women who have an unwavering commitment to the advancement of women both in the legal profession and within the community. In addition to academic achievement, the WBF considers leadership and public service. I was recommended by a former professor and law school Dean to apply. After the application process, I was interviewed by a panel of over five board members who are all women attorneys in the Chicagoland area.” – Kiesha Mull
“Leaders & Achievers Scholarship” – Diversity Scholarship Foundation
“Diversity and inclusion are integral to advancing the legal profession and the Leaders & Achievers Scholarship seeks to honor those who are stewards of diversity within the university and legal community. I was recommended by a former professor who knew about my passion for serving the community and engaging disenfranchised youth in counseling and educational programs. The application process included faculty recommendations, personal statement, public service and high academic achievement.” – Kiesha Mull
Post-graduation, Mull plans on continuing her involvement with community service projects and improving financial literacy with a concentration on estate planning while launching her legal career.
