Monday, June 1, 2020 - 12:00pm n/a

Laws shape the nation and can affect your life in ways you are often unaware of. People often come to lawyers because they don’t fully understand the legal situation they now find themselves in. Although they can sometimes be complicated, and it may seem like there’s a never-ending stream to learn and understand about the legal system, we believe that having a grasp of our legal processes is fundamentally important. We’ve seen first-hand the effects that laws can have on everyday Americans.

To help a deserving student reach their academic goals and impress upon them the importance of lawmaking, the Law Offices of Tragos, Sartes & Tragos is excited to offer a privately funded scholarship essay contest. The scholarship will award $1,000 to one deserving student who presents a creative, practical, and substantive answer to our essay question: 

How will the popularity of podcasting impact the legal world in the next decade?

Arash Law Scholarship -- $1,000

Monday, June 1, 2020 - 12:00pm TBD

Arash Law, one of California’s premier injury law firms has always been dedicated to helping the next generation of law students and future attorneys to success. Arash Law has always perceived monetary concerns as an unnecessary obstacle to succeeding as an attorney. Exceptional students should worry about nothing more than studying to reach their goals in the field of law. When those students merely want to help others such as car accident victims through the maze that is the legal system, they should not be barred simply because of a lack of funds.

When a student demonstrates that they are dedicated to becoming a professional in the field of law, they are devoting their lives to something they believe it. The choice to become an attorney at law is not the most affordable decision to make. That is why Arash Law is ready to help and encourage such choices by potential law students.

This $1,000 scholarship is an offer for all current University students enrolled in law school or hoping to do so in the future. Ideally, the scholarship funds should be used to pay for qualified expenses such as tuition, books or on-campus room & board for the 2019 school year.

This 2019 Scholarly Law Student Scholarship Award will be awarded to the one deemed most worthy out of all that apply. This recognizes that student’s potential and achievements in academics. It is our way of giving back to the community and rewarding the student for their efforts. 

Applications must be submitted on or before June 1, 2020.
