“We have created this scholarship in an effort to help promising students overcome the financial burden of pursuing further education,” commented attorney Bryan McCormack of McCormack & Erlich. “We hope the award can put a young person hoping to join the legal field on the path to building a bright future.”
The winner of the McCormack & Erlich Employment Law Firm Scholarship will be revealed in September 2017.
