Moll Law Group Offers College Scholarships to Selected Outstanding Essayists

As a law firm that represents those who have been seriously injured, Moll Law Group knows that one of the best ways to prevent personal injuries or even death is to take the adequate precautions beforehand. Of course, this does not mean that society should shift the blame onto those who have been hurt in serious or fatal accidents. Instead, we all should be held to a high standard when it comes to the effects of our actions.

edge-1563789At Moll Law Group, we have been studying and practicing personal injury law for decades, and we understand that the law is not static. It changes over time. With the advent of new ideas and technologies, what was once considered the norm years ago may now be understood to be physically dangerous due to consequences that may not have been realized at the time. This is why Moll Law Group encourages new ideas and is enthusiastic about technologies that increase the overall safety of society.

Here at Moll Law Group, we want to encourage safety in all forms. And to further that aspiration, we are offering two $1,000 scholarships to selected college students who submit an essay about safety or injury prevention. Acceptable topics include, but are not limited to, products liability (dangerous products), premises liability (slip-and-fall accidents), auto safety, medical care, nursing home care, and child safety. For more ideas on acceptable topics, see Moll Law Group’s website.

Moll Law Group will determine finalists in each contest period and will post the names of the finalists, as well as links to their essays, on Moll Law Group social media pages. Contestants will then have about two weeks to share their essays with the public. In determining who will be selected as the scholarship recipient(s), Moll Law Group will consider the total number of “likes,” “shares,” and “comments” each essay garners on the various social media sites.

Requirements:

  • Essays must be completed by the deadline and must be accompanied by the application, available here.
  • Essays must be between 1,000 and 1,500 words.
  • Essays must be written on a topic that furthers Moll Law Group’s goal of preventing serious injury and death.
  • Remember, each application is limited to just one entry.

Application Deadlines:

  • Spring Application:  March 31, 2016.
  • Fall Application:  October 31, 2016.
