Our Academic Scholarship
Encouraging Future Lawyers to Share with Those Who Need It Most
At Arnold & Itkin, we are committed to providing legal representation to those suffering catastrophic injuries and who lost loved ones to wrongful death. We've earned a national reputation for doing just that, winning billions, including record-breaking cases. We help victims of truck accidents, offshore accidents, work injuries, and more.
Outside of the courtroom, we're equally dedicated to giving back to our community through various initiatives. Attorneys Kurt Arnold and Jason Itkin founded the Arnold & Itkin Foundation to help pursue a broader definition of justice and seek to inspire hope in the midst of tragedy.
To empower and encourage future attorneys in their pursuit of similar goals, we award the Arnold & Itkin LLP Academic Scholarship. Our firm will award $45,000 total to 6 current law students (1L or 2L) who share our passion for assisting the underprivileged and the victims of tragedy. Regardless of the area of law, the scholarship recipients should be focused on utilizing the legal system to support those less fortunate. All applicants should demonstrate both past and current dedication to victim advocacy and/or community service.
