Annual Juvenile Justice Law School Scholarship

Annual Juvenile Justice Law School Scholarship offered by Tiftickjian Law Firm, P.C.

We are committed to juvenile justice and want to encourage young people to pursue a career in law and hopefully make a difference to someone in their careers. We have discovered that nothing matters more in the early life of a youth charged with a crime than lawyers, legal professionals, and judges who are committed to defending the rights of the youth. That is why our law firm is offering the Juvenile Justice Scholarship to encourage and assist students with attending law school with an interest in juvenile justice, as well as raise awareness of the issue of prison sentences and reduced rights for minors that place youths on an institutionalized path towards spending a large part of their life in the criminal justice system. We can do better.
