Since 2014, Lemberg Law has been sponsoring scholarships for students interested in a career in law — which touch on the entrepreneurship and marketing aspects of being a successful law practice. We feel this is a vital component (read our editorial on this), which is not given enough attention by schools. Growing a law firm and making a name for yourself is harder than ever, and though our scholarship program, we have sparked thousands of applicants to think about these issues in a fresh way. Here, we’re proud to list the past winners.
