Congratulations to JCA alum Adrian Guzman ’17 who was recently chosen as the first recipient of the Will County Legal Opportunity Scholarship.
Recipients of the scholarship are “eligible to receive up to $46,000 to help repay outstanding legal education debt,” the Will County Bar Association website said. In return, the scholarship recipients will be expected to practice law in Will County.
Guzman, a political science major at University of St. Francis, is currently studying law at Northern Illinois College of Law. He is hoping to concentrate on criminal law and/or immigration law and said he is looking forward to practicing in Will county, perhaps as a public defender or in the state’s attorney’s office
“It’s nice to give back to the community you grew up in,” Guzman said.
This scholarship program is a collaboration among the Will County Bar Association, the Black Bar Association of Will County, Latino Bar Association of Will County, Will County Women’s Bar Association and Spesia & Taylor Attorneys at Law. A scholarship committee selected four finalists, the release said.
