About the Law School Scholarship
Ben Crump, the founder of Ben Crump Law PLLC, dedicates his law practice in ensuring that people who are powerful never get away with harming those who are powerless. Crump and his legal team believe that the world grows into a better place when power is not wielded, but rather shared. We share power by sharing knowledge. One way we share knowledge is through mentorship.
Martin Luther King, Jr. said, “Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, “What are you doing for others?’”
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 overwhelming bigger picture.
When the law school student graduates, another breed of challenges steps into the picture. 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.
