Law in Society Scholarship

The Law in Society Scholarship competition is sponsored by the Virginia State Bar and its Litigation Section to increase awareness and appreciation of our legal system among high school students.

The criterion for the competition is an essay in response to a hypothetical on a predetermined topic. Awards go to students whose essays best demonstrate a superior understanding of the role and value of our legal system in our everyday lives.

A panel of volunteers from the Virginia State Bar and teachers and administrators throughout the commonwealth will judge all entries.

For entry information, this year’s hypothetical, and winning essays, please see our Law in Society Scholarship page.
