The Rizio Lipinsky Law School Scholarship is open for applications! As in years past, one deserving future attorney will receive $5,000 toward their law school tuition for the 2022/2023 school year.
This marks the fourth year that Rizio Lipinsky will financially support a future attorney. Each year, our team of attorneys and senior firm management looks forward to reading your scholarship application essays. To date, we’ve awarded $25,000 in scholarships to students from coast to coast, and we’d love to consider your application this year!
The idea for the scholarship originated from Senior Trial Attorney and Firm Founder, Gregory Rizio. Greg is one of California’s most award-winning and influential personal injury attorneys. Representing victims injured in accidents and assaults, Greg has practiced law in California for more than 30 years. Likewise, Partner Daren Lipinsky is renowned for his skill in the field of employment law, where he represents employees who have experienced discrimination, harassment, wage and hour, wrongful termination, and other workplace violations.
Over the years, Greg and Daren have volunteered countless hours mentoring young attorneys and decided that a scholarship would be a fantastic way to support even younger future advocates. Today, that scholarship is included in Forbes magazine’s Ten Best Law School Scholarships for Aspiring Lawyers!
Each year, Rizio Lipinsky receives hundreds of essay, and spends hours poring over submissions. Our team draws incredible inspiration from reading the life stories of burgeoning advocates, and the big plans they hold for the future.
We hope you’ll share your story and dreams with us this year. You can read about last year’s scholarship winner Tiani Boapeah here.
