The Riley Law Group PC Pursuit of Justice Scholarship

Why?

Pursuit of Justice Scholarship

Grant Riley and the attorneys of Riley Law Group PC have focused their practice on representing children and families who have been mistreated by abusive landlords.  We believe in giving back to the community. But we also know that our “community” is much larger than our home town of Los Angeles. As a result, we want to help current or future college or law school students pay for their tuition to college or law school. That’s why we have initiated the Pursuit of Justice Scholarship open one high school, college or law school student anywhere in the United States.

So What is it?

The “Pursuit of Justice” Scholarship is simple. We want students to capture something that embodies the pursuit of justice and prepare a short video feature on the topic. The submission should include a brief write-up (no more than 500 words) and an image or video (uploaded to YouTube) that shows the Pursuit of Justice. Images and Videos MUST be original content. That means you can take a picture or video of the pursuit of justice as you see it – but you can’t take something from the web or borrow someone else’s material. Our firm will select all submissions and select one winner for a $2,500 scholarship before the Fall 2020 Semester.  Our $2,500 scholarship will then be paid to your college or law school!
