The Reeves Law Group Scholarship

Description: 

For 2017 The Reeves Law Group is awarding a $3,000 scholarship to a deserving law student who authors a winning essay in our fourth 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 in the justice system for those who have no voice of their own. Helping people in need by providing them with our resources and expertise in the legal system is one of our greatest rewards.


America has a superb justice system, but it could use more exceptional individuals with a passion for improving the conditions of the less fortunate, via the legal system and other means. For our fourth annual scholarship contest, we are 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 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.

Requirements: 

To be eligible for our scholarship contest, you must be: a legal US resident, and either a current (1) law student at an accredited U.S. law school, or (2) an undergraduate student who has applied or will apply to law school. Students with full academic scholarships are not eligible to enter this contest.
