Ramey Law Scholarship (Deadline: July 1, 2016)

Submitted by

Who Can Apply:

  • Recipient is a U.S. citizen or otherwise authorized to work in the United States
  • Recipient is accepted, and will either be attending school as a pre law undergraduate or entering law school in the fall of 2016
  • Academic achievement as reflected by a minimum 3.0 GPA

Submission:

  • A completed resume
  • 1,000 word (max) typed essay on the following topic: By the time of the next presidential election in 2016, three of the current justices on the US Supreme Court will be in their 80s. It is likely that the President who will be elected in 2016 may have the opportunity to appoint up to three new justices to the Supreme Court. Future justices could potentially face cases on everything from campaign finance to affirmative action, abortion and voting rights. Some advocate for a so-called “litmus test” during the confirmation process to try to determine how a nominee might vote on a particular issue should it come before the Court. Others argue that judicial experience or temperament should be the main qualifier, and such tests should not be used. Which do you believe is the best evaluator of a nominee, and why?
  • An acceptance letter from a school within the United States

Deadline: July 1, 2016

Amount: $500
