It's exciting to see applicants who are passionate about important issues. We couldn't be prouder to invest in the future of our profession.
DALLAS, TX, January 17, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Dallas law firm Guajardo & Marks announced the availability of a scholarship for first-year law school students who have demonstrated creative authorship.
The cost of law school has quadrupled over the last four decades, and the firm says it is proud to be able to offer assistance to students.
"Law school has become incredibly expensive, and we are happy to do whatever we can to encourage creative people to enter the field," said Michael Guajardo, partner at the firm. "By offering this scholarship to someone who has demonstrated proficiency in writing, we are sure that we'll find a recipient who is equipped to be successful in the pursuit of a career in the legal field."
Applicants for the scholarship should be U.S. citizens or authorized to work in the U.S.; entering law school in August 2017; and have had an article published in a newspaper, magazine, professional blog or academic publication. The firm does not require that the article be specific to the legal field. The article will be judged for its originality, creativity and ability to clearly convey a complex message.
Applicants can submit the necessary materials via the Guajardo & Marks website. The firm will notify the successful applicant by June 15, 2017. A check for $1,000 will be made payable to the applicable law school and mailed by August 1, 2017, to help defray the recipient's tuition costs and other expenses. The recipient is expected to comply with current tax laws.
Guajardo & Marks offered a similar scholarship in 2016 and said it was proud to offer it again in 2017.
"We had some impressive submissions during our previous scholarship offering," said Greg Marks, partner at the firm. "It's exciting to see applicants who are passionate about important issues. We couldn't be prouder to invest in the future of our profession."
