"The value of the John Marshall Scholarship goes far beyond the money, because it really is a whole learning program that provides great practical experiences and connections. Other schools offered tuition assistance, but for me, everything that comes with the John Marshall Scholarship was far more appealing. In less than one semester we've already had the chance to meet many impressive individuals, including the legal counsel for the U.S. Department of State and the President of the AFLCIO. When Justice Scalia visited campus, the John Marshall Scholars were given front row seats at a luncheon talk he gave. Experiences like that are truly invaluable for a law student, which is what sets the John Marshall Scholars program apart from so many other scholarships."

"Being a John Marshall Scholar has been extremely rewarding. We have the opportunity to speak with some of the most influential legal figures in the country, and learning firsthand about the practical application of law at the highest levels has been a welcome balance to the everyday coursework of other classes. Also, discussing some of the most controversial issues of the day with Justice Lacy - and then meeting with the players involved - is a unique experience for a law student. As an added bonus, there is a strong alumni network of John Marshall Scholars, and the designation has served as a good conversation point in job interviews."

"Participating in the John Marshall Scholars program is a truly unique and unparalleled learning experience. The program consists of a fascinating discussion about a controversial area of the law which is led by one of the finest legal minds in the State. There is nowhere else I could have engaged in the open and free dialogue with the leaders of the legal profession in so close a setting. I am truly thankful for the program and consider myself extremely fortunate to be a part of it."
