Lemberg Law “Land of Opportunity” $1,250 Law School Scholarship
The United States was built from the labor of immigrants. Since before the founding of this great country, one wave of immigrants after another has tirelessly worked to make this nation stronger. Immigrants are legendary leaders. They are inspiring innovators. And they are proven patriots.
Sergei Lemberg, Lemberg Law’s managing attorney, is an immigrant. He came to the U.S. as a refugee from the former Soviet Union when he was just 15 years old. He honed his intellect, studied assiduously, and was admitted to Brandeis University and the University of Pennsylvania Law School. Today, he leads one of the nation’s top consumer law firms, and is committed to helping immigrant students become the attorneys of tomorrow.
Lemberg Law is offering a $1,250 scholarship to a law student who is an immigrant, who understands that America is the land of opportunity, and who is inspired to reflect on their knowledge of consumer law.
Applications for the Lemberg Law Land of Opportunity Scholarship are due by 11:59 p.m. EST on April 30, 2018. Apply now!
