The Fund was established by the AAJ Women for Justice Education Fund in 2008, through the Women's Caucus, in honor of AAJ Past President Mike Eidson, whose vision and generosity inspired it. The Scholarship will be awarded annually to a rising 3L (or rising 4L in a night program) female student who has demonstrated a commitment to a career as a trial lawyer, along with dedication to upholding and defending the principles of the Constitution, and to the concept of a fair trial, the adversary system, and a just result for the injured, the accused, and those whose rights are jeopardized.
The deadline for applications is May 31 and our first Scholarship will be awarded at the AAJ San Francisco convention, July 25-29.
The application can be found online at http://www.justice.org/resources/FINAL_Mike_Eidson_Scholarship_App(1).pdf
