The Adam Williams Scholarship Essay Contest
Adam Williams has always been a proponent of a strong and focused education, not just in the legal realm, but for all of those seeking a career that makes a difference in the world. Education forms the basis for your ability to learn for the rest of your life, and educated adults often turn into leaders and social figures. Mr. Williams firmly believes that no student should go without education due to their inability to pay. No matter what your background is, it should be easy to receive an education that will enable you to fulfill your dreams.
In the same vein, Mr. Williams believes that no legal client should be deprived of quality representation, regardless of their ability to pay. Not only does he donate his time to legal and philanthropic organizations to help stem the tide, but he wanted to do more than that–he wanted to create a way for up-and-coming college students to fulfill their future career dreams without needing to worry about the financial costs.
The Adam Williams Scholarship was established to make people more aware of the class inequalities within the legal community and to help correct them through education and quality legal counsel. Educational inequality is one of the leading causes of crime and it is one of the easiest facets of social inequality to shift in a more positive direction. With just a little more time and attention spent on quality education for all, humanity would be in a much more mature and compassionate place.
In the words of Nelson Mandela, “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” Mr. Williams hopes that this scholarship contributes just a small part to helping to change the world through education.

Education is the key to success, yet so many people are without it. In an ideal world, what do you think that education would look like for everyone?
There are many individuals whose fame has endured for centuries despite growing up in poverty, slavery, or other troubled beginnings. Choose one famous historical individual who rose from a tough start to become a public figure to write about–someone like Helen Keller or Frederick Douglass, for instance, would be a good start. How do you think they would have benefitted from receiving an education earlier on or being taught by subject experts during their youths? Do you think that it would’ve changed the direction of their lives?
