Nearly 60 entries were received for the contest and $10,000 in prize money was offered. Participants wrote essays on a variety of mesothelioma topics: a mesothelioma sufferer’s personal story, the history of asbestos use in American industry / manufacturing, and the latest developments in medical treatments for mesothelioma. The scholarship money from the essay contest is one way the law firm encourages younger people to learn about the disease. The contest is also designed to generate enthusiasm by encouraging the public to support the entrants and their essays via Facebook. Through this outreach, our hope is that the contestants will spread the word about mesothelioma to family and friends, and expand the reach of mesothelioma awareness.

The rm awards two 1L law students with (1) a $7500 scholarship to be applied to the student’s second year tuition and (2) a paid 10-week summer associate position between the student’s rst and second year of law school.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      To be eligible for the Diversity Scholarship, the applicant must be a full-time currently enrolled 1L law student who is in good standing at an accredited law school. First year students who are members of populations historically underrepresented in the legal profession are encouraged to apply.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      In addition to the eligibility requirements set forth above, the recipient will be selected on the basis of the following criteria: (1) the individual must possess an academic record, interest and capacity that evidence great promise for a successful career during the remainder of law school and in the legal profession; and (2) the individual must contribute to the diversity of the student body at his or her law school. Although a disclosure of nancial circumstances is not required, a demonstrated need for nancial assistance may be taken into consideration. The Diversity Scholarship recipient will be chosen based upon the Firm’s review of all scholarship applications and interviews conducted with scholarship finalists.

We are a tough Georgia law firm that will fight to the finish for our clients. But our associates know that not every battle is fought in the courtroom. Fighting a disease requires more than a legal “Strong Arm”—it requires a dedicated team of medical staff, loved ones and countless more. Fighting leukemia requires determination, drive and diligence in both the patient and the patient’s loved ones. Often, the battle is a solitary one, isolating the patient and family. Our firm associates recognize this. That’s why we are delighted to introduce the first-ever John Foy & Associates “Strong Arm” Leukemia Scholarship. Our $1,000 scholarship will be awarded to one college student who has battled leukemia or whose life has been affected by it.

We have discovered that nothing matters more in the early life of a youth charged with a crime than lawyers, legal professionals, and judges who are committed to defending the rights of the youth.

Jon himself believes that helping individuals with their problems is one of the greatest callings in life for any individual and he has found that fulfillment in bankruptcy law. Jon chose helping people over pursuing money through means such as big business law, choosing to put his heart before his bottom line. And we’re looking to support a student who has that same type of heart and drive. Jon is also proud to be a first generation lawyer, having been an engineer for the first 20 years of his life, putting himself through law school on his own dime. So, he has a soft spot for students who don’t have a family history in law and are paving their own way, getting themselves through school on their own.

But we believe it’s just as important to nourish the next generation of leaders and professionals—and we want to do that where it matters most. Many of us involved in the site have seen firsthand how diabetes can change a life. Often, it comes without warning and it can radically alter how a person lives from day to day. But we also believe that diabetes should not be an impediment to pursuing your dreams. We want to help a student with diabetes complete their college education and launch their career. That’s why we are delighted to introduce the first-ever Los Angeles DUI Attorney Diabetes Scholarship. Our $1,000 Scholarship will be awarded to both undergraduate and graduate students who have been diagnosed with any type of diabetes and carry a 3.0 GPA.

It was established to provide financial support to a law student whose life has been impacted by a family member serving in the Marine Corps and who is seeking to continue their education through law school.

At the Sattiraju Law Firm, we are dedicated to helping hard-working people get the just pay and treatment they deserve. We want to expand our efforts of helping people by investing in the next generation of lawyers. That’s why we are sponsoring a $1,000 scholarship for students who are planning or are currently attending law school, and will not have graduated by December 31, 2016. Even though all students with plans or who are currently attending law school are encouraged to apply, special consideration will be given to those who plan or are specializing in employment law or who are the immediate relative of a transport/truck driver that has been classified as an independent contractor. We believe employment law is an especially important area of law and want to encourage those who are committed to helping workers.

As such, we are proud to offer five (5) scholarships ($1,000 each, sent directly to the winners’ schools) to help exceptional young people begin or continue their educational journeys and start making success their own tradition. Fostering success is not the only reason that we offer these scholarships. All of our founding partners and many of our current partners were the first in their families to go to college. We understand the dedication, hard work and financial responsibility that are required to get an education and start down the path to a bright future. As such, we provide these scholarships to help lessen the financial stress of paying for an education, allowing the selected applicants to spend more time focusing on their studies.

The purpose of the Bar Foundation is to establish, support and conduct programs and activities designed to promote the public’s understanding of law and the legal system and to establish and award scholarships for the study of law.

Priority will be given to students exhibiting financial need and who represent the opportunity to enhance, broadly, diversity within the profession. The Bar Foundation intends to work with the admissions offices at both law schools to identify students meeting these criteria. The tuition stipend amount is $5,000 a semester and is paid directly to the law school to the credit of the student’s account.

It uses improved road safety (design-focused measures), driver education, and increased enforcement of traffic laws. This combination has been shown to dramatically reduce the number of traffic fatalities, and Boston Attorney John Sheehan is trying to raise awareness of the potential by offering a scholarship to students willing to focus on the issue of traffic safety.
