The personal injury attorneys at O’Connor, Acciani & Levy are proud to offer the 2021 Accountability & Morality Scholarship! Everyone, even corporations, is accountable for their actions. Every action has an effect on the people and places involved. Whether it is something as small as an individual making a ‘just’ decision or as large as environmental impact, every action has its positive and negative effects.

Mahatma Gandhi once said, “it is wrong and immoral to seek to escape the consequences of one’s acts.” As individuals, this is easier said than done. We can control our actions and be held accountable for our mistakes. But what happens when corporations make mistakes, or a product has side effects that were unintended? Who is held accountable? Scholarship applicants are asked to dive into liability law and business ethics to describe a time either they personally, another individual, or a group were injured because of corporate oversight. Who was held accountable for the incident? How were damages fixed? And were the results fair?

Once all of the submissions have been received, the entries will be reviewed and the top five applicants will be selected to each receive a $1,000 award for their essays that describe a time when a corporation’s actions failed resulting in someone or a group of people being injured, and how the victims overcame their situation and held a specific party accountable.

Eligibility

  • The scholarship is open to any current high school senior, college student, or graduate student who is a legal resident of the United States.
  • Candidates for this scholarship should have a minimum GPA of 3.0 or higher and be in good overall academic standing.

Application Requirements

  • The candidate must submit a 750-word essay response to the prompt: Applicants are asked to dive into liability law and business ethics to describe a time either they personally, another individual, or a group were injured because of corporate oversight. Who was held accountable for the incident? How were damages fixed? And were the results fair?
  • The candidate must submit a professional resumé that lists their experience, both professional and academic.
  • The candidate must submit a transcript from their current school. First-year college students, graduate students, or individuals who have recently transferred schools may submit an unofficial transcript from their current school, as well as the most recent official transcript from their prior school. High school students must also submit proof of acceptance to their college or university.

Application Deadline And Instructions:

To be eligible for this scholarship, candidates must email their full application (including the essay, resumé, and transcript) to info@oal-law.com by October 31st, 2021. Any applications sent after this date will not be considered.

Scholarship applications should be sent with the subject line “O’Connor, Acciani & Levy_Accountability & Morality Scholarship_Application” to info@oal-law.com.

The top five essays of the 2021 Accountability & Morality Scholarship will be chosen during the month following the scholarship deadline and those five will be the recipient of the $1,000 award.

 

 

Today’s youth is pushing for America to open its eyes on the lack of diversity in the professional world. For instance, we are seeing a huge push to expand diversity and representation in the entertainment industry. Also, there is a spotlight on our educators and teachers who lack diversity as well, and a push on administrations to diversify facilities and offer more diversity training.

But what about the legal field? The legal profession remains one of the least diverse of any profession. According to the American Bar Association’s National Lawyer Population Survey in 2017, about 5% of active attorneys identified as Black or African American and about 5% identified as Hispanic or Latino. Unfortunately, in addition to these racial and ethnic diversity categories, there remains a gap in the legal field for just about every other minority group out there – women and the LGBTQ+ community included.

At The Law Offices of Doroshow, Pasquale, Krawitz & Bhaya, we want to encourage diversity in the legal industry. That is why we have created the DP Law Encouraging Diversity Scholarship! This $1,000 scholarship will be awarded to a minority law or pre-law student. We are passionate about promoting minority participation in the legal field. If you identify as a minority based on your ethnicity, race, gender, sexuality, or economic status and are interested in pursuing a career in law, you are eligible for our scholarship! Please share why you want to become a lawyer, what type of law you are pursuing, and what motivates you. We are looking forward to hearing from you!

ELIGIBILITY

  • The scholarship is open to any current high school senior, college student or graduate student who is residing in one of the 50 states or in Washington DC and who is enrolled in a two to five year post-secondary institution for the Spring 2022 semester.
  • Employees of The Law Offices of Doroshow, Pasquale, Krawitz & Bhaya, their immediate families (parent, child, sibling, and spouse), and persons living in the same households of such individuals (whether related or not), are not eligible to participate in the competition.
  • Candidates for this scholarship should have a minimum GPA of 3.0 or higher and be in good overall academic standing.

APPLICATION REQUIREMENTS

  • The candidate must submit a 750-1,000 word essay response to the prompt: Why do you want to become a lawyer? What type of law are you pursuing? What motivates you?
  • The candidate must submit a professional resumé that lists their experience, both professional and academic.
  • The candidate must submit a transcript from their current school. First-year college students, graduate students, or individuals who have recently transferred schools may submit an unofficial transcript from their current school, as well as the most recent official transcript from their prior school. High school students must also submit proof of acceptance to their college or university.

The recipient of the DP Law Encouraging Diversity Scholarship will be chosen during the month following the scholarship deadline.

APPLICATION DEADLINE AND INSTRUCTIONS:

To be eligible for this scholarship, candidates must email their full application (including the essay, resumé, and transcript) to Dover@dplaw.com by October 31, 2021. Any applications sent after this date will not be considered.

Scholarship applications should be sent with the subject line “The Law Offices of Doroshow, Pasquale, Krawitz & Bhaya – 2021 Encouraging Diversity Scholarship Application.”
