Terry Bryant Accident & Injury Law – The 2019 Law School Scholarship is now closed

Terry Bryant Accident & Injury Law is proud to announce the availability of a $2,500 scholarship to be awarded to a student who has been accepted to or is currently enrolled in an ABA- or AALS-accredited law school.

We believe that attorneys can be agents of change and advocates for those who deserve a voice. We’ve centered our practice around this philosophy, and we’re hopeful that tomorrow’s lawyers will continue this mission.

Who Will Be Awarded This Scholarship

America’s next generation of attorneys will represent people facing life’s biggest challenges, often against interests that seem insurmountable. We want to help one of these soon-to-be advocates achieve their goal of becoming an attorney.

The $2,500 law school scholarship will be awarded to a future attorney that can effectively and creatively tell us why they strive to become an attorney. We want to know what motivates candidates to practice law and what they plan on accomplishing in their career as an attorney.
