Welcome students and others who are trying to better their lives. Below you can see Ehline Law Firm’s latest scholarship offering.

Please read the rules carefully. You can win! We are presently offering three yearly scholarships. Because I became a lawyer in the Law Office Study Program, went to law school, and got my J.D., I love helping starving students. Also, I am a big fan of getting a good education in and out of traditional school settings.

In addition to helping law students find internships and externships, my firm offers several financial opportunities for struggling law and paralegal students.

Ultimate Law Firm Scholarships For Students

The Ehline Law Firm is extending several legal scholarship offerings to give back to the legal and educational community. 

We will keep this block of offerings open through the end of 2030, so if you lose the first round, you have several more attempts to re-enter available to you.

Below are the primary offerings and links to the various terms and conditions for each. Take a look below to learn more.

Unless Labeled Otherwise, Participants in all Scholarships Must Meet the Following Criteria:

  • Participants must be enrolled in an accredited College, Law Office Study Program or Law School, such as a judge’s chambers, law school, or another university in several states.
  • Must either prove a GPA that shows cumulative Grade Point Average (GPA) of 3.0 or higher or proof of continuous law office study until the time of the receipt of the award.
  • As stated, all military vets must show proof of their honorable discharge (OTH need not apply unless cleared to “honorable”).*

The top placing articles may also get released on one or more of our legal blogs and other publicly searchable websites and publications.

They will include your author’s info and bio. Thus, losers of the scholarship itself will still have a chance at public recognition.

To expedite your application, electronically contact us via e-mail at Include all forms in either Word or WordPerfect format. Add your DD214 and Proof of GPA as a PDF attachment.

Additionally: We will need your full name, the name of the attorney, judge, or school under which you study, and the names and contact info of at least two character references. Former commanding officers and NCOs are acceptable for veterans as character references.

We hope you will continue participating in the scholarship, and we will be offering the same award yearly, and have decided to keep the program going indefinitely.

Deadline: These are both yearly contests, and the last day to submit the required materials for each game will be 10/1 of each year.

The Scholarships

The positive benefits of continuing with law school far exceed the pitfalls and other obstacles to ultimate success on your educational journey as a student, intern, or extern.

But there are times when excellent students deserve recognition to show them that merit deserves credit. Thus, our serious injury law firm has decided to help students go the extra mile and has established one $500 law school scholarship and one paralegal studies $750 scholarship to show our support. We also offer one military veteran’s scholarship for $1,000.00.

About Paralegal Students

$750.00 Scholarship

This too is a yearly renewable scholarship. This contest initially requires a completed application and essay. All registrants shall be presently registered in an accredited paralegal school, or be pursuing a grandfathered paralegal program offered under the current laws of their jurisdiction and venue.

This offering is not for law students. But instead, this particular offer applies to people working in a law office or attending an accredited, or state recognized paralegal program or learning institution. There is no requirement that applicants have a GED or diploma.

People in schools shall show, in addition to the above prerequisites, that they presently maintain a minimum 3.0-grade point average (“GPA”), and if not in a school, shall provide proof from their teacher or instructor, in the form of a letter, that the student is an exemplary student.

About Tort Law

$500.00 Scholarship

NewtonThis is a yearly scholarship. All applications for the tort law contest scholarship must include a 500 or more word essay about improving the image of the personal injury profession. It should include examples of at least one recent case of capping or running, and ways lawyers can prevent the image of “ambulance chaser.”

In other words, it should not focus on all pi lawyers as being aggressive car accident attorneys. So we want to avoid further spreading this perception into the public conversation. These two scholarships are intended to get used for supplemental income to subsidize your legal education positively.

1st For Military/Veterans

$1,000 Scholarship

In the essay, provide examples of who is liable for the injuries, and what changes could have been made to things like helmets and armored transport, for example. Hopefully, the discipline, honor, and motivation learned in your military training will help you be a better writer and improve the image of lawyers in the consumer’s mind. For example, what life lessons did you obtain from your experience in boot camp, MOS schools, etc? Our Los Angeles personal injury attorneys want to read about your story.

And what did you learn from these challenges? How did these experiences help you prepare for making the world a safer place? Why did you choose serving first over some other profession? Were you wounded in combat, were you an MP? So tell us everything pertinent to your facts and opinions.
