Eastman & Smith Supporting Pre-Law Students


Several years ago, Eastman & Smith Ltd., in conjunction with the Toledo Public Schools Foundation, established the Eastman & Smith Ltd. Pre-Law Scholarship for students at Toledo Public Schools. The scholarship is awarded to a senior whose goal is to have a career in law. Applications for the scholarship can be obtained from the Toledo Public Schools Foundation.

The TPS scholarship is one of several ways in which Eastman & Smith supports education for the next generation of legal professionals. In addition, Eastman also supports the University of Toledo's chapter of the Black Student Law Association and assists the College of Arts & Sciences Board of Advocates at Bowling Green State University in its mentoring of pre-law students.

If you are interested in a career in law, the internet and your local library are a wealth of information. Descriptions of different legal careers, skills and education they require as well as job duties and salaries can be found both on the Occupational Outlook Handbook and the Ohio State Bar Association web sites. Books such as Career Opportunities in Law and the Legal Industry and Careers for Legal Eagles & Other Law-and-Order Types provide information on a variety of careers in law.
