The U.S. Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights is investigating New York Law School to determine whether Judge Judy Sheindlin’s scholars program violates Title IX.

In January, Sheindlin gave a $5 million legacy gift to NYLS to establish the Judge Judy Sheindlin Honors Scholars Program, open to women who primarily have financial need and who have the credentials to merit the scholarship. These women may come from the Her Honor Mentoring program, which was co-founded by Sheindlin and her daughter, but the scholars program is also open to other eligible women as part of the admissions process.
