770GOODLAW believes that ethics are important in every field, but they are essential to obtain justice. The Good Law Scholarship gives students the opportunity to delve deeper into this topic and express their thoughts and opinions on critical issues in the American justice system. Our hope is that this scholarship will encourage students to stand up against the ethics violations and injustices that they believe are plaguing the justice system in our country.
To apply for the Good Law Scholarship, students must research and explain at least one way that ethics are being violated, in your logical opinion, in the American justice system. Explain how you can help fight against these ethics violations. The Student who best describes their specific issue and their plan for addressing it will receive this $1,000 scholarship award.
