Description

Entrants for our scholarship must submit a minimum of a 600-word typed essay on one of the following two topics to be judged by partners Joe Benson and Ben Bingham at the conclusion of the deadline: 1. Premises Security: Given the Mandalay Bay Shooting, what steps should hotels take to insure the safety and security of their guests? or 2. Consumer Product Safety: When are the affixed warnings regarding the potential risk of injury obvious enough to warrant not having them? [A product is defective for its failure to be accompanied by suitable and adequate warnings concerning its safe and proper use, if the absence of such warnings renders the product unreasonably dangerous. To be adequate a warning must be: (1) designed to reasonably catch the consumer's attention, (2) that the language be comprehensible and give a fair indication of the specific risks attendant to use of the product, and (3) that warnings be of sufficient intensity justified by the magnitude of the risk.] In order to be eligible for the scholarship award, applicants must adhere to the following scholarship criteria: currently enrolled in or recently accepted to an accredited law school; a United States citizen or permanent resident; have a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher. A copy of your college transcript (unofficial) must accompany the application. Proof of law school acceptance or attendance must accompany the application. Applications must be received electronically by August 31, 2018 to the following email address: scholarship@bensonbingham.com. In the subject line, please reference: Benson & Bingham Annual Scholarship Application. One grand prize winner will receive a one-time payment of $2,000 and two one-time runner up awards a payment of $250 to be applied to the law school of their admission/attendance. Essays may be published by Benson & Bingham, so please refrain from submitting anything personal, vulgar or inappropriate for the web. The winner of the award will be announced by October 31st, 2018.
