2020 Michigan Workers Comp Law Scholarship
Michigan Workers Comp Lawyers are pleased to offer our sixth annual scholarship for law school students who are actively pursuing a law degree.
The law offices of Alex Berman PC are proud to support future lawyers with the launch of our annual scholarship to assist students with law school expenses. Workers’ compensation is an important benefit for employees injured on the job, yet each state’s laws vary significantly on levels of coverage. Our attorneys continually champion to protect employee rights and encourage law students to learn more about the field of workers’ compensation law. Our scholarship is open to all 1L, 2L and 3L law students.
Our annual scholarship of $500 will be awarded to one applicant in 2020.
