Albertson & Davidson, LLP Offering $2,500 College Scholarship


At the law firm of Albertson & Davidson, LLP we understand that obtaining an education is the pathway to success for many young Americans. As attorneys, we all have earned both undergraduate degrees as well as successfully completed a rigorous three-year Juris Doctorate before being even eligible to sit for the California Bar Exam. Through these experiences, we have come to understand the often significant financial burdens associated with obtaining an education beyond high school, which is why we are pleased to announce that we will be awarding $2,500 college scholarship to the winner of our newly created essay contest. By creating this award, we hope to help the next generation of students realize their educational and professional goals.


Open to individuals who are currently attending or are planning on attending an accredited United States college or university during the fall 2017 semester.

Application Process: 

In order to participate in the essay contests, applicants must submit a 500-word essay answering the question

  • Courts in the United States have little power to change the terms of a valid will, even if some of its terms seem unfair to people who would normally expect to inherit assets. Do you think that it should be legal to disinherit your spouse or children, and should courts be able to change the terms of a will that they decide is unfair? Why or why not?

In addition, applicants must provide the following information:
