The law school scholarship grant which kicked off in 2021, is an annual philanthropic project in partnership with Principle Legal Consult and has successfully produced five lawyers with ten beneficiaries currently going through law school at various campuses in the country.

According to her, the grant is not only committed to sponsoring the tuition fees of its beneficiaries but also supporting their growth to become the best lawyers.

So far, The Prada Uzodimma Law School Scholarship Grant has been successful in producing 5 lawyers; Momoh Abdulrahman Etudaiye, Simibiat Taiye Suleiman, Akunna Mary Opara, Ikechukwu Promise Obialor and Yaknse Ekanem, who attended campuses at Abuja, Enugu and Yola respectively and are now practising lawyers, she said
