AUSTIN, TEXAS – Loewy Law founder, Adam Loewy, and his legal team believe passionately in championing justice for the disadvantaged. In an extension of the firm’s core values of advocating for those who cannot do so for themselves, Loewy wanted scholarship candidates to describe how to “…apply civil law to right injustice.”
In her essay, this year’s scholarship awardee Natalie Winters addressed the use of civil law to implement justice and check governmental power where she states, “…civil law plays a vital role as a guardian of justice.”
Winters, who holds undergraduate degrees in both Political Science and Global Studies with an emphasis on Governance, Peace and Justice in the Middle East from the University of Minnesota, worked in Congress for four years. She feels, “…a legal career would be a better way to impact the world positively because it will allow me to work directly with clients and advocate on their behalf.” She is a first year student at the University of California, Berkeley School of Law.
To be eligible to apply for the Passion for Civil Rights Scholarship, applicants must either be accepted to or currently enrolled in an accredited college, university or law school program within the United States and maintain a minimum 3.2 GAP as evidenced by official transcripts.
Loewy Law Firm’s founder, Adam Loewy, is known to support numerous local charities and non-profits. The intent of this scholarship, Loewy says, “…is to further the aspirations of any future lawyer who shares our passion for balance and equity.”
Though she worked in Congress for four years, when asked about future political aspirations, Winters says she believes “…government can be a powerful force for good. Right now, I am focused on becoming the best lawyer I can be.” Her essay speaks to her passionate desire to serve as an ally to those most in need of an advocate.
