Davis Levin Livingston Scholarship Promotes
Public Interest Law
“Advocate is a synonym for lawyer,” said Mark Davis, a partner in the firm. “And there is no role more admirable in the practice of law than that of a champion for those abused by the system or circumstance. This scholarship is our way of encouraging the next generation of enthusiastic advocates to join the battle.”
“It’s a fact that corporations and government agencies are willing to overlook injustices visited upon the public,” said Davis, “And it’s also a fact that a multi-million dollar settlement in a lawsuit can be, not only a remedy for an individual, but an incentive to change the status quo and recognize that malfeasance has consequences.”

Completed applications must be submitted no later than July 1, 2014.
