Moses and Rooth Attorneys at Law have proclaimed a winner for their 2017 Legal Scholarship Contest. Aleschia Hyde was awarded the $1,000 scholarship which she plans to utilize when she enrolls in the Northwestern Pritzker School of Law in August of this year. The Legal Scholarship is one of many offered by this prestigious Orlando law firm to help fund the education of future legal scholars.
The scholarship winner announced was chosen based on a number of different factors. These include her current academic status, community involvement, school engagement, and her submitted short essay. Miss Hyde’s academics include being a researcher as well as obtaining an M.A. at the University of Chicago, an M.Ed. from the University of Michigan, and a B.A. from Dartmouth College. She plans to attend Northwestern Pritzker School of Law in the study of immigration or criminal law.
The scholarship essay submitted by Miss Hyde tackled a popular area of law that has been in debate more recently. She spoke about the Second Amendment which gives all American citizens the right to bear arms. Her article was specifically focused on the legislative actions that are placing restrictions on firearms. Miss Hyde evaluates these restrictions and whether or not they infringe on the Second Amendment right of all Americans.
Miss Hyde breaks down firearm legislative actions into two general types. The first she considers to be the restrictions on where and when firearms can be used. She believes this doesn’t infringe on any legal rights as an American citizen can still possess a firearm, which is the basis of the Second Amendment.
The second type she explains in her scholarship-winning essay is the restriction on who can use firearms. She cites examples of restrictions instituted after major public incidents, including the assassination of President Ronald Regan and the Charleston Massacre. Miss Hyde shares her opinion that there is more ambiguity when it comes to this second type of restriction as many consider them a matter of public safety.
Moses and Rooth sponsor a variety of different scholarships to encourage the education of fellow legal scholars. These attorneys are based out of Orlando, Florida and mainly practice in the fields of criminal defense and DUI law. Their mission is to ensure that your rights as an American citizen are protected. They will strive to fight for those who are violating your given rights.
