Right to Privacy Scholarship


Scholarship Value: $1,000
Awards Available: 1
Award Deadline: Aug 31, 2022

The Law Offices of Leifert & Leifert is steadfastly committed to giving back to the community. We continue to stand by this commitment through different artistic, civic, academic, and philanthropic causes.

One of the fundamental ways we give back is by helping young people achieve their full academic potential so they can then have a positive impact within their community and those around them. To promote this idea we have created the Leifert & Leifert Right to Privacy Scholarship.

Right to Privacy

Today, those who go through the criminal justice system have very little privacy. Personal information that is easily accessible, like mug shots, can often harm an individual’s opportunity to find a job, decent housing, or remain involved in the community after their release.

Should we limit some of the information that is publicly available like mug shots? Should there be a difference between “celebrity” arrests and arrests of “ordinary” citizens in terms of the right to privacy?

The Leifert & Leifert Right to Privacy Scholarship will award $1,000 to the candidate who can best discuss whether or not those who have been arrested have a greater right to privacy versus the public’s right to know and view all of the details surrounding their arrest. More specifically, does mug shot publication and general access to the public outweigh any potential violations of invasion of privacy interests of individuals who have been arrested?
