Dubin Scholarship Contest

Provided by Law Offices of Matthew Dubin

Description:
Dubin Scholarship Contest In Suits at common law, where the value in controversy shall exceed twenty dollars, the right of trial by jury shall be preserved, and no fact tried by a jury, shall be otherwise re-examined in any Court of the United States, than according to the rules of the common law. Despite the language of the Seventh Amendment to the United States Constitution, we are living in a time in which the civil justice system is under attack. All across the nation, legislatures have placed limits on the rights of civil claimants to have a jury determine the value of their injuries. In some States, they have even imposed minimum thresholds before an injured person can gain access to justice through the courts. The Law Offices of Matthew D. Dubin passionately advocates for the preservation of the Seventh Amendment, and believes every injured person should have access to justice and the right to have a jury decide every aspect of his or her case. We believe this system provides not only justice to the injured individual, but results in a safer and happier society for everyone. To increase awareness about the benefits of a vibrant civil justice system, and the importance of the Seventh Amendment, The Law Offices of Matthew D. Dubin is sponsoring an essay contest with scholarship prizes to help young people further their educations. To enter, students should write a 600 word essay on the following topic: "How has the U.S. Civil justice system changed society for the better?" The contest is open to high school juniors and seniors and students currently enrolled in 2-year or 4-year colleges or universities in the United States. We believe that getting an education is the best hope for young people to attain a rewarding career in the 21st century. We are proud to assist with scholarship prizes to help you further your education. Read More .. http://www.dubinlawoffice.com/Community/Dubin-Scholarship-Contest.shtml
