Incoming law students invited to relate how they would positively impact world as lawyers; Deadline for entry, April 15, 2018
DALLAS – BARBRI Law Preview, part of leading legal education provider BARBRI, and the Phi Alpha Delta Law Fraternity are inviting incoming law students to proclaim how they would, as lawyers, positively impact the world.
Through the 3rd annual “One Lawyer Can Change the World $10,000 Scholarship” opportunity, one student will be awarded a $10,000 scholarship to go toward his or her first-year law school tuition.
“From the bottom of my heart, I’d like to sincerely thank BARBRI for this incredibly generous scholarship,” said Amanda I. Sarmiento, 2017 scholarship winner, currently attending Texas A&M University School of Law. “This scholarship will allow me the opportunity and privilege of impacting the lives of so many for years to come.”
The scholarship challenges students from across the nation to submit a 500-word or less essay online by April 15, 2018, in response to: “How you hope to use your law degree to change our world and how would $10,000 towards your 1L tuition change your world?” BARBRI Law Preview panelists will select 10 finalists by April 25, and announce them on lawpreview.com. The scholarship recipients will be selected by the panel by June 10, 2018, with the award paid directly to the winner’s law school.
“We’re very excited about sponsoring our annual scholarship, and appreciate the opportunity to partner with an organization such as Phi Alpha Delta to offer this to incoming law students,” said Don Macaulay, president and founder of BARBRI Law Preview. “Each year, we see more participation from deserving students, and find their essays on how they could positively impact our world as lawyers both enlightening and inspiring.”
