In July of 2018, Lydecker announced the launch of a college scholarship program designed to benefit an undergraduate or graduate student enrolled in a U.S. college, university or institute. Applicants delivered a 500-word essay expressing why he or she wants to practice law.
On December 15, 2018, a panel of judges chose Samuel Hurtado, from Arizona Western College, Yuma, AZ, as the winner of the scholarship program. Samuel will receive a $1000 gift to go towards his law school education.
“The thought of being able to own a practice and be able to do what I love on a day to day basis excites me,” said Samuel in his submission for the scholaraship. “Even if that means turning every rock because this a profession that I am in love with.”
“Samuel’s essay was very compelling and we hope that this scholarship will help him continue to pursue a career in law with as much passion and determination as he displayed in his submission,” said Richard Lydecker, Senior Partner at Lydecker.
