The Austin Family Attorneys at Nunis & Associates remember their days as tightly-budgeted but idealistic law students, so they provide a $1,000 check to the law student who submits the best essay on the topic of:
Yes, we want to every year provide a bit of financial relief to one needy law student. But more importantly, we want to focus student attention on an issue that needs new ideas, fresh thinking, and additional ways to at least partially fill the legal needs of low earners.
Essays should be 750-1,250 words long, be written in plain English, provide well-supported and clearly-stated arguments, and propose additions, substitutions, or improvements to the legal resources now available to the poor.
Essays are due March 1, and should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. The scholarship will be awarded in April.
