Anderson Boback & Marshall Scholarship For Law Students Pursuing A Career In Family Law

The Anderson Boback & Marshall law firm, family law and divorce attorneys in Chicago since 1998, is proud to announce the A B & M Scholarship for Aspiring Family Law Attorneys. We’re offering a $1,000 scholarship to a student pursuing a law degree at an ABA-accredited law school who has a passion and interest in family law.

At Anderson Boback & Marshall, we are experienced family law and divorce attorneys providing legal representation to clients involved in Divorce, Spousal Support, Child Custody & Support, and other family law matters. We work with clients and families of all sizes and types resolving some of life’s most difficult legal issues. We take a compassionate and supportive approach to tough emotional situations and design solutions to help our clients move forward with their lives. 

Each semester, Anderson Boback & Marshall will award a $1,000 scholarship to one dedicated law student to help them ease the financial hurdles to becoming an attorney.

Supporting Talented Law Students pursuing a Career in Family Law

We are interested in hearing what inspired you to become an attorney. We’d love to know what specifically motivates your interest in practicing family law and why? And, why you think you would make a good lawyer. If you have any previous experience in advocating for yourself or others, please also share how that experience informed your decision to pursue a career in law!

At Anderson Boback & Marshall, we believe that every party involved in divorce and family law cases deserves a talented, dedicated advocate to help them fight for fair treatment under the law. It’s not enough for us to help our clients obtain justice for their unique situations—we want to make sure that the law itself is applied properly so that others don’t have to go through what they did.

That’s why we’ve established this scholarship program: to foster an attitude of fairness and compassion in those who are pursuing a career in family law. We hope it will encourage you, too, as you take steps on your path toward becoming an attorney.
