Willens Law Offices is pleased to announce our inaugural “Anything But Law School” scholarship. Some of you may be wondering, why would a law firm create a scholarship to dissuade students from practicing law? The answer is simple; we currently do not have enough jobs to be able to effectively train the current number of freshly minted lawyers in our profession. To protect the reputation of our profession Willens Law Offices has created this scholarship to persuade undergraduates to pursue another graduate degree for a limited time.
Our annual scholarship is $1,000 and will be awarded in 2014.
