Legal Templates Annual Scholarship

Who are we?

Legal Templates uses cutting edge technology to help people create legal forms at an affordable price. Our goal is to make simple legal services like creating a lease agreement, living will, or power of attorney more accessible, efficient, and less expensive for everyone.

What is our scholarship?

Our scholarship is designed to get our nation’s youth to think critically about the interaction between laws and society, and how each shapes the other. Specifically, we will ask students to think about the relationship between gun ownership laws and gun violence rates in U.S. society.

Gun violence is a hot topic in Congress and around the country. Certain demographics voice strong opinions regarding their constitutional right to own a gun, and many citizens feel that owning a gun gives them a measure of security. Less than half of Americans favor stricter laws regarding the buying and selling of firearms, and in some states, buying a gun is as simple as exchanging a bill of sale.[1]

What are the issues surrounding gun violence in America?

According to a Pew Research Center survey, more than one in every three households in America have a gun, which is closely equivalent to one gun for every man, woman, and child in America.[2]

While overall homicide rates in the U.S. are slowly dropping, America’s firearm homicide rate sits high above that of other developed nations. With over 3 firearm homicides per 100,000 people per year, this is more than 10 times the rate in countries like France, Germany, and the UK.[3]

What’s more, mass shootings are occurring with increasing frequency.[4] During the whole term of his presidency, Obama has made 15 speeches after a mass shooting, the most recent of which prompted him to say that “somehow this has become routine.”[5] Firearm violence and mass shootings inflict untold suffering on the families and communities of gun violence victims.

How do we solve this problem?

With support for gun ownership so entrenched and widespread, are there perhaps other ways to reduce firearm crime in America without resorting to gun ownership control?

This brings us to our scholarship topic: Create a law that would reduce the rate of gun violence and still respect the Second Amendment right to bear arms.

How to apply for the scholarship

Write a 500-800 word essay about a law you would submit to Congress which would bring about a reduction in the rate of gun violence in America while still respecting the Second Amendment right to bear arms. Submissions should be sent in Word or PDF form. We are looking for a solution to this problem which is both creative and practical. Infographics are also highly encouraged.

Your submission should be attached to an email and sent to scholarship@legaltemplates.net. The body of the email should include:

  • Your name
  • University attending (if applicable)
  • A brief introduction about yourself

Applications will receive confirmation email upon receipt on our end.
