To be considered for a Book Award, applicants must submit a printed or typed Book Award application, resume, and a one page personal statement that addresses the following issues:
(i) how do you intend to use your legal training and skills to assist others, and
(ii) how does your background demonstrate your commitment to working with low income populations and/or traditionally underserved communities.
Applications will be accepted until October 30, 2010. Only complete applications will be considered for a Book Award.
The Book Award winners will consist of the three applicants who best show a demonstrated interest in using their legal knowledge and training to assist others that are low income or are members of traditionally underserved populations. Book Award winners will be notified by telephone of their selection. Recipients will receive their awards at a CCLA event held in Raleigh on November 18, 2010. For more information or if you have questions, please call (919)395-8880.
Students can stop by the Office of Financial Aid for a paper copy of the application.
