Social Biases in the Courtroom Scholarship


Scholarship Value: $1,000
Awards Available: 1
Award Deadline: December 31, 2020

The personal injury lawyers at the Warshauer Law Group are committed to equality in the courtroom. For that reason, we are excited to announce that our Social Biases in the Courtroom Scholarship will be returning for 2020!

According to The Expert Institute, 83% of expert witnesses in the courtroom are male. Our own, Lyle Warshauer, has recognized that in more than ten years of courtroom practice she has never seen a female expert witness in the courtroom. The observation highlights a shocking social issue. Female expert witnesses receive 40% less compensation than their male counterparts even with similar experience. This problem shows a clear double standard in the legal industry when it comes to equal opportunity.

The Warshauer Law Group has established a scholarship in the amount of $1,000 to support students with an interest in promoting equality and reducing the gender gap.
