Law school in the United States is expensive. Our firm wants to help a law student avoid some of the costs associated with law school, and we are now accepting applications for the spring 2018 NW Corporate Law scholarship, which will be awarded to one second or third year law student who is in financial need and who is actively enrolled in an ABA-approved law school. The award will be paid to the student, and the awarded funds may be used by the student for any expenses related to the student’s law school education. All of the details are below, including a link to the application.
Be a 2nd or 3rd year law student enrolled in an ABA-approved law school in the United States.
Have an interest in business law or entrepreneurship.
The application must be submitted by March 1, 2018.
The scholarship will be awarded to the single winner by March 31, 2018.
1. Most recent law school transcript.
2. Essay: Law school is expensive, and many young lawyers are forced to take jobs they don’t want as a result of lingering law school debt. In 500 – 700 words explain how you would ideally use your law degree if you did not have debt following law school. Essays related to business law or entrepreneurship encouraged, but not required. Points for creativity.
3. Resume: 1 page max, limited to your work, volunteer, and other educational experiences.
There will be one award of $1000 to one student applicant, awarded at the discretion of the firm.
The awarded funds may only be spent on law school educational expenses.
