Scholarship Short List of 10

By Stewart J. Guss on March 26th, 2015

We are days away from announcing the winner of the first Annual Stewart J. Guss College Student Scholarship. We were simply blown away by the number and quality of the over 400 submissions from all over the country. The subject of the essay competition was What Law Would You Change and Why? And topics ranged from constitutional law to human rights, immigration and distracted driving.

We want to showcase the quality and scope of the essays as a way to show how some of the brightest minds in the country are thinking conscientiously about the legal system and how to improve justice in the future. So without further ado, here is our shortlist of essays in no particular order. Feel free to visit and comment:
