We’re excited to share the news that Tiani Boapeah is the recipient of the $5,000 Rizio Lipinsky Law School Scholarship!…
For the third consecutive year, our Southern California based plaintiff’s law firm is providing a law school scholarship to a future attorney in America. The scholarship is open to students entering law school for the first time in the 2021/2022 academic year. It is also open to current law students who will still be attending law school for the 2021/2022 school year. The entry details can be found here.
Over 1,000 future attorneys have applied to the Rizio Lipinsky Law School Scholarship over the past two years. It has been our enormous honor to support previous winners as they began law school at UCLA (2019 winner) and Harvard Law School (2020 winner).
Offering this scholarship is especially rewarding this year, following the unprecedented challenges our world has endured as the result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Students have been pulled from regular classroom activities, and forced to learn online, with limited contact with their fellow students. One-on-one meetings with professors, admissions counselors, and more have gone digital. Studies groups have moved online. Students missed out on senior year sports seasons and graduation ceremonies. We understand it’s been hard, and we are here to help.
This year, due to the tremendous upheaval in students’ lives, the submission period will be extended. Essays will be accepted from February 15, 2021, through July 1, 2021. The winner will be notified by August 15, 2021. We will officially announce the winner of the $5,000 Law School Scholarship in September 2021.
Each year, reading the scholarship essays brings our team of personal injury and employment attorneys a great deal of joy. Essays showcase determination, grit, fearlessness, compassion, and a relentless pursuit of justice. We are so comforted and excited to see clearly through these incredible essays, that the future of legal advocacy in America will be in excellent hands.
