Burg Simpson Scholarship


Scholarship Value: $2,500
Awards Available: 10

At Burg Simpson, we recognize the importance of access to a good education. In 2012, we launched the Burg Simpson Scholarship Competition. Each year we encourage Colorado high school seniors from across Colorado to write a 1,500-word essay about the importance of the civil jury system as the guardian of American rights and liberties.

Partnering with the Colorado High School Activities Association (CHSAA) over the past 10 years, we have awarded well over $100,000 in scholarships to college-bound students.

THE JURY SYSTEM AS THE PROTECTOR OF RIGHTS

In an effort to teach the next generation about the importance of the civil jury system, the law firm of Burg Simpson is sponsoring our tenth annual essay competition for high school seniors. Write an original essay of 1,500 words or less that describes:

A) How the civil jury system in the United States is being threatened;

B) How the civil jury system protects your rights as a citizen; and

C) The importance of preserving the civil jury system for future generations.

DID YOU KNOW?

Civil and criminal law are two separate legal systems with different rules, laws, and standards. Essay submissions about the criminal justice system will not be considered.
