Introducing the 2021 Scholarship for Eligible Students Pursuing a Paralegal Degree

At McCleery Law Firm, our attorneys understand the financial burden that pursuing a law degree can have. The team at McCleery also understands how important paralegals are to a legal team. This is why McCleery Law Firm has created the Paralegal Scholarship Contest.

Our goal with this scholarship is to help alleviate some of the financial burdens of obtaining your degree while also supporting future paralegals.

For the first annual Paralegal Scholarship Contest, we are asking students to write a 500-word essay about “why you decided to achieve a paralegal degree and what you hope to accomplish once you graduate.”

We will be judging essays on cohesiveness and originality. The chosen winner will receive $1,000 to put towards their tuition on behalf of the team at McCleery Law Firm.
