Supporting the Next Generation of Trial Lawyers

Named in honor of AAJ's past-President, the Women Trial Lawyers Caucus's Mike Eidson Law Student Scholarship is a $5,000 award presented each summer during AAJ's Annual Convention.  The scholarship is awarded to a female Law Student member who is committed a career as a trial lawyer and ensuring a just result for the injured, the accused, and those whose rights are jeopardized. Congratulations to the 2023 scholarship recipient, Mari Paz, a JD candidate at University of California, Berkeley School of Law.
