Harry Stone Memorial Scholarship

Over years of practice as a business law and real estate lawyer serving residents in the California region, I have seen first hand the devastating effects of discrimination and other violations of tenant rights. What makes these violations even worse is that tenants are very often unaware of the legal rights that they have?

Fortunately, those rights can be enforced in a court of law, thereby cementing them and protecting you against retaliation, eviction, violation of habitability rights, and other similar transgressions.

In order to promote greater awareness of tenant rights, I have created an annual $500 scholarship that will promote better education and vigilance, contributing to more legal protections for tenants. In order to be eligible for the scholarship, you must create a video essay that answers the question "Why Is It Is Important for Courts to Uphold Tenant Rights?"

Who Is Eligible?

In order to be eligible for the scholarship, you must be a current student of an accredited college, university or trade school, or must have been accepted to another acceptable institution.

What am I Required to Do?

You must create a video essay that answers the question, "Why is it Important for Courts to Uphold Tenant Rights?" The video essay must be not more than three minutes in length, and must be posted on YouTube.

What Next?

Once you have posted your video, email the following informatition to scholarship@stonelawfirm.com:

  1. YouTube video URL
  2. Full Name

All applications for scholarships and submissions must be completed by December 15, 2017. All applications for scholarships will be judged based on the creativity of the video essay as well as the persuasiveness of the legal argument that you make.

The winner of the scholarship will be announced in January 2018 by e-mail, and the one-time $500 scholarship money will be immediately distributed to the University.
