DUI Defense Scholarship


At The Orr Law Firm, we value the importance of justice, and the accused receiving a fair trial. We have been successfully defending DUI clients for 15 years. DUI defense is one of the most complex and scientifically based crimes in America. Almost all the evidence gathered against the defendant is based on science, pseudo-science and scientific principles (however the "accuser" is often a machine). Having an accomplished lawyer fighting for the defendant's rights and freedoms is critical to his or her future. We want to continue to grow the ranks of available DUI defense lawyers. To encourage this, we are awarding one student a $1,000 scholarship to put towards law school. From tuition costs to books and meals, the scholarship money can be used to cover any expenses. The deadline to apply is Midnight MDT, August 15, 2017.* Eligible students should submit an essay to answering the prompt As a Defense Attorney, would you defend a drunk driver? Essays will be judged based on the following criteria: content, style and creativity. One essay per entrant only. Please include your name, mailing, email address, phone number and documentation of your current or upcoming enrollment in law school. Full-time students over the age of 18 enrolled in a current or upcoming accredited law program are eligible. Completed applications must be sent no later than August 15, 2017. Application materials should be emailed to One applicant is awarded a $1,000 scholarship. The Orr Law Firm scholarship award recipient will be notified of the selection on or before August 31, 2017.
