Lemberg Law “Entrepreneurial Spirit” $1,250 Undergraduate Scholarship

The American Dream. A promise that success, prosperity and fulfillment are attainable by any and all citizens of this country. The price of entry? An entrepreneurial spirit and a willingness to put in the hard yards.

Lemberg Law’s Managing Attorney, Sergei Lemberg, has spent much of his life cultivating his own entrepreneurial spirit, having worked his way up through the ranks in a traditional law career before going on to found his own practice which has been in business for well over a decade.

Having seen how rewarding striking out on his own has been, Sergei Lemberg is keen to encourage young lawyers to discover their own inner entrepreneur. As a result, Lemberg Law is offering a $1,250 scholarship to a student with entrepreneurial aspirations who is inspired to learn more about the law.

What do we need from you?

Not much! We’ll need a few bits of information, and to qualify for consideration for the scholarship you’ll need to submit an example of a Facebook-style ad (along with a caption)aimed at engaging the public on the subject of either lemon law, debt collection harassment, or overtime pay.

Once the entries are in, we will select the best 10 to move forward into the final, where each entrant will submit a further 2 Facebook-style ads on the above subjects from which the winner will be picked.

Members of the Lemberg Law team will review all of the submissions. We’ll select the 10 best entries to progress to the final based on originality, creativity and quality of the submitted ad. Finalists will be notified by January 30, 2019.
Entrants will then have a further three weeks to submit their entries for the final (due February 20, 2019), which will consist of 2 further Facebook-style ads based on the original topics.
