Here at The Law Place, we understand that the decision to go to law school is perhaps the most important decision of your life so far, and we want to help.
According to data released by the U.S News and World Report, which studies over 197 law programs up and down the country, the average cost of attending law school currently sits at $43,020 dollars.
This makes law one of the most expensive subjects that a student can choose to study. It is a massive commitment.
That is why The Law Place decided to annually offer a $2,500 scholarship to one student who can demonstrate to us their dedication and appreciation of what studying law means to them. We want to help ease the financial burden of the next generation of law students.
To enter, we would like you to write an essay under 1,000 words on the following subject.
“Who is your legal hero, living or dead?”
We want you to elaborate with as much flair and enthusiasm as you can here, explaining your decision as passionately as possible. We want to know exactly why they are your hero, and how they have had an influence on your life and your decisions up until this point.
