Ehline Law Tort Law Scholarship Fund
Ehline Law Firm specializes in tort law, and is keenly aware of the negative impression many consumers have about “ambulance chasers.” We are also more than cognizant of the many lawyer jokes that regular folks tell about PI lawyers, car accident attorneys in particular.
But we want people to know that not all tort lawyers are wicked, or even “scumbags.” Some of us are in it to help others and don’t pretend to good, we just are good. Overcoming the negative image means crushing the stereotype with good works. This is why we set up this tort law scholarship. It all starts with education.
Open to all pre-law and regular law students, Ehline Law Firm, in a continuing effort to assure squared away and motivated people to enter and stay in the practice of law, has decided to set up this $500.00 legal scholarship fund. We support legal education, whether it is law office study, or modern law school education. Read more below.
All applications for the tort law contest scholarship must be accompanied by a 500 or more word essay about improving the image of the personal injury profession.
It should include examples of at least one recent case of capping or running, and ways lawyers can prevent the image of “ambulance chaser” from further spreading into the public conversation. These two scholarships are intended to be used for supplemental income to subsidize your legal education in a positively.
Basic Award is $500.00 This is a $500.00 award
