In order to encourage interest and passionate engagement in the practice of law, Peeples Law Group is proud to sponsor a $1,000 scholarship opportunity open to those interested in pursuing the study of U.S. law.
For more than 20 years, the attorneys and staff of Peeples Law Group have worked to provide client-focused, dedicated, and knowledgeable advocacy on behalf of our clients. We pride ourselves on providing the professionalism and comprehensive approach employed by many larger firms while maintaining a client-centric, small firm culture. We seek to support the education of scholarship candidates similarly committed to the integrity of the practice of law while always keeping the needs of those who require legal assistance first and foremost in their hierarchy of priorities.
To foster a desire to serve those in need of legal counsel, our firm has created a scholarship for students who are either currently enrolled in an undergraduate or advanced degree program or who plan to enroll in a degree-granting program that promotes legal education opportunities. Former President Barak Obama once observed that “The study of law can be disappointing at times, a matter of applying narrow rules and arcane procedure to an uncooperative reality… But that’s not all the law is. The law is also memory; the law also records a long-running conversation, a nation arguing with its conscience.” Our firm similarly believes in the depth, nuance, and power of the study of law and it is our great privilege to financially assist those interested in pursuing educational opportunities rooted in the study of modern U.S. law and/or its evolution over time.
