2020 denver trial lawyers scholarship contest

Award: $1,000

Description:

The jury trial system is a vital part of America’s system of checks and balances. Checks and balances create a strong judicial system within our government which relies upon a jury trial option.

Jury trials are unique to America’s democracy and justice system, and are a constitutional right not found in many other countries. 

Denver Trial Lawyers ® wants to know what does justice mean to you? Our Denver serious injury attorneys are asking YOU, the citizen, to write a compelling and strong 750+ word essay.
