The Bill of Rights Scholarship

The attorneys at Skaug Law, PC are committed to fighting to protect the rights of people who have been injured due to someone else’s negligence. The United States legal system is complex and can be difficult to navigate, especially if you are not aware of your rights. 

There is value of knowing your rights. As the founding document of the United States of America, the U.S. Constitution expresses the rights of its citizens. As attorneys, we at Skaug Law hold the U.S. Constitution and the amendments in the Bill of Rights in the highest regard. Because we believe students should study our founding documents, we are providing an opportunity to express what they have learned.

We are excited to announce the 2019 Bill of Rights Scholarship, designed to allow students to explore the U.S. Constitution, specifically the Bill of Rights. The Bill of Rights Scholarship will award $1,000 to a student who best supports their thoughts on the Bill of Rights.
