The — Law Offices of Wolf & Pravato has chosen a winner for the firm's 2016 "Future Lawyers of America" Scholarship. The winning scholar demonstrated outstanding academic achievement and great promise, taking home the $1000 scholarship with an essay detailing a personal experience that inspired the student to aim at becoming a lawyer.

The Law Offices of Wolf & Pravato would like to congratulate the winning applicant, thank all who entered, and encourage attorneys-to-be everywhere to keep an eye out for and enter the firm's next scholarship competition.
"Over the course of my many years as an attorney, one consistent source of inspiration has been seeing young people set their own sights on a career in the field," said Vince Pravato, Founding and Managing Partner of the Law Offices of Wolf & Pravato, "We created this scholarship to celebrate and support students who aim at becoming lawyers in order to make a positive difference in the world around them. We couldn't have been more impressed with the qualifications of the applicants, and the essays that we received made for inspiring, fascinating reading.

As with other forms of higher education, the costs associated with attending law school have been rising steadily for decades. In fact, tuition and fee inflation has been especially severe among the nation's law schools, with the cost of attendance at the average public institution for residents having multiplied by a factor of more than ten between 1985 and 2012, according to the American Bar Association.
The Law Offices of Wolf & Pravato "Future Lawyers of America" scholarship was created to provide much-needed support to one of the nation's most promising law students. Open to citizens and permanent residents currently accepted to or attending an accredited American law school, the $1000 scholarship is awarded to the candidate who demonstrates the most impressive mix of academic achievement; potential for and commitment to future excellence as an attorney; community involvement; and a personal background, as detailed in an essay, that inspired the decision to become a lawyer.
The winner of this year's Law Offices of Wolf & Pravato scholarship excelled in all these respects and others, standing out even within a wide field of other applicants who were impressively well qualified themselves. As one of the nation's leading personal injury law firms, the Law Offices of Wolf & Pravato consistently gives back to the community through activities like the recently awarded scholarship and by supporting dozens of charities and causes locally and nationwide.
