The Reeves Law Group Scholarship
For 2017 The Reeves Law Group is awarding a $3,000 scholarship to a deserving law student who authors a winning essay in our fifth annual Scholarship Essay Contest.
Our law firm specializes in representing victims of accidents and other tragic circumstances. As lawyers, we feel fortunate to be advocates for those who have no voice of their own in our complex justice system. Helping people in need by providing them with our resources and expertise in the judicial system is one of our greatest rewards.
America has a superb justice system, but it could use more exceptional individuals with passion for improving the conditions of the less fortunate through the legal system and other means. For our fifth annual scholarship contest we are again pleased to support a future lawyer who demonstrates through past, current and expected future deeds a genuine commitment to serve the less-fortunate.
Tell us about such deeds, including contributions you may have made or are currently making to help, for example, a non-profit institution, a specific group, your local community, or the public at large. Tell us also how you intend to use your legal training to advance those goals.
We would like you to tell your story in a brief narrative, starting with an introduction about who you are, your interests, and anything else you feel we should know about you. Then, please provide your entry in a 750-1000 words essay, or Prezi presentation. Graphic and creative presentations are welcome.
The scholarship will be awarded to the applicant who best demonstrates a genuine desire and goal of using the legal system to fix problems or improve conditions in our society. Worthy deeds that you have already performed will be considered.
