The Harris Federal Law Firm Scholarship

And the Winner is….Harris Federal Scholarship

We are pleased to announce that this years’ winner of our scholarship contest is Thomas Gallagher! He has been awarded $1000 to help fund his legal education.

Originally from Philadelphia, Thomas knew from a very young age that he wanted to pursue a law career. He credits his passion for law to three mentors. In his essay he submitted for this contest, Thomas writes, “Beyond inspiring me to attend law school, the biggest inspiration I have received from each of my mentors is to use my legal training to serve my community.” He has found that he loves Constitutional Law and says that one day he may even go on to work for the Federal Government in Federal District Court. In his spare time, he enjoys cooking and competing in intramural soccer.

Thank you to all who participated and once again, congratulations Thomas!
