Benson & Bingham understand the rigors of law school accompanied with the expense to become an attorney, and felt obliged to help alleviate the financial strain with their annual scholarship offer. The firm is pleased to announce that they ended up awarding not just a grand prize of $2,000, but two additional $250 runner-up awards due to the quality of the essays received.

For 2018, Benson & Bingham elected to keep the same eligibility requirements, however they've elected to continue to award two additional runner up awards. In addition, the essay questions have been changed to provide a fresh set of circumstances with which to judge scholarship applicants.

In order to be eligible for the scholarship award, applicants must adhere to the following scholarship criteria:

  • Currently enrolled in or recently accepted to an accredited law school.
  • A United States citizen or permanent resident.

Scholarship Guidelines:

Entrants for our scholarship must submit a minimum of a 600-word typed essay on one of the below topics to be judged by partners Joe Benson and Ben Bingham at the conclusion of the deadline:

  • Premises Security: Given the Mandalay Bay Shooting, what steps should hotels take to insure the safety and security of their guests?
  • Consumer Product Safety: When are the affixed warnings regarding the potential risk of injury obvious enough to warrant not having them? [A product is defective for its failure to be accompanied by suitable and adequate warnings concerning its safe and proper use, if the absence of such warnings renders the product unreasonably dangerous. To be adequate a warning must be: (1) designed to reasonably catch the consumer's attention, (2) that the language be comprehensible and give a fair indication of the specific risks attendant to use of the product, and (3) that warnings be of sufficient intensity justified by the magnitude of the risk.]

Judging the essay’s value will be contingent on the below qualities:

  • Originality of thought or provocativeness of article.
  • Attention to current law as well as statistical knowledge of the area of investigation.
  • Submissions must be 100% original and never published or disseminated at a previous time.
  • Candidates may site case law or historical record with appropriate citations to the source.
