Our Community Involvement
Awarded annually, Bunch & Brock, Attorneys at Law, offer a scholarship intended to promote and reward creative authorship. Applicants must to be starting law school in the fall and be the author of a published article, which was judged on originality, creativity, and the ability to clearly convey a complex message.
2017 Winner: Bunch & Brock, Attorneys at Law in Lexington, Kentucky, have announced they have chosen Christian Rice of La Mesa, California, as the winner of their 2017 Bunch & Brock Attorneys Law School Scholarship Contest. After graduating from Georgetown University in Washington, D.C., Rice worked as a policy analyst in the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Science, Space and Technology. Originally from La Mesa, Calif., Rice majored in government and minored in philosophy as an undergraduate; he will attend The University of Virginia’s School of Law, founded in 1819 by Thomas Jefferson in Charlottesville, VA, in the fall 2017 semester.
2016 Winner: Megan Phillips was selected as the winner for her piece, “Not: The Negative Linguistics of the American Legal System.” Published in The Alexandrian, a peer-reviewed journal, Ms. Phillips’ article discusses “how the language of American law is fundamentally based in the negative, creating a binary to the positive which may or may not definitively exist, and defining legality through the illegal, allowing the two warring sides to mediate one another in an attempt to create an effective system.” A graduate of Troy University, Ms. Phillips is now a student at Faulkner Law University in Montgomery, Alabama.
The $500 opportunity is available again and will be awarded at the beginning of the next academic year (August 2018). For more details, click here.
Lexington High School Sports:
At Bunch & Brock, we believe that investing in our youth is one of the best ways we can give back to the community that gives so much to us.
That’s why we were happy to sponsor ads in local high school programs here in Lexington. Sports are a big part of Kentucky life and high school sports have made us proud in Kentucky. We know these kids work hard on and off the field and a large group of graduating students were college bound.
Congratulations to all graduating seniors for a job well done.
