About the Law School Scholarship
Ben Crump, the founder of Ben Crump Law PLLC, dedicates his law practice in ensuring that

Martin Luther King, Jr. said, “Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, “What are you doing
Law school challenges even the brightest students. A mentor can prop a flailing student up and
encourage them to keep moving, keeping them focused on the task at hand, rather than the

They all have to do with applying the theory of academia to the real world of law practice.
We created the Law School Scholarship for two reasons: to help a promising, driven law school
student pursue their dream and to create a discussion, maybe even ignite a passion for the
power of mentoring.
