Description

Morgan & Morgan is committed to giving back to the community. We want to inspire young lawyers to approach their careers with the same mindset. Applicants will be evaluated primarily on the quality of their answers, but also on their creativity. We get so many moving entries every year, and while we can only pick three winners, we want to lift up as many voices as possible this year. In submitting your essay and photos, you may get the chance to be featured on our social channels (with your permission), even if you're not selected as a recipient of the scholarship. We hope to highlight as many of you and your inspiring words as we can. In order to be eligible for the scholarship, applicants must meet the following requirements: Currently accepted or enrolled at a law school accredited by the American Bar Association (ABA) or the Association of American Law Schools (AALS). Scholarship funds are paid directly to the winnerÔÇÖs school for use during a law school tenure. Morgan & Morgan employees and their family members are not eligible to participate. Past scholarship awardees are not eligible to participate. Applicants will submit an essay addressing one of the following questions: 1. COVID-19 has changed all facets of life. In light of this, what permanent changes do you think should be made to the criminal and/or civil justice system to ensure that the swift and fair administration of justice is possible in perpetuity? 2. Discuss a Supreme Court case you believe was wrongly decided. 3. What role should personal beliefs play in consideration of the appointment and confirmation of judicial nominees? The essay must be between 500 and 800 words. This year we are offering three students the opportunity to win 3 prizes: 1st Prize: $5,000 Scholarship (Award money must be used toward tuition or education expenses). 2nd Prize: Morgan & Morgan Ultimate School Swag Pack (Herschel Bag, Padfolio, Morgan Pen, Yeti water bottle, Nike cap, Hand Sanitizer, Mask, Hoodie). 3rd Prize: Morgan & Morgan Starter School Swag Pack (Oakley gym bag, t-shirt, Nike Cap, Yeti water bottle).
