All scholarship applicants were asked to write a brief narrative of their background and interests followed by an essay on their ideas for the future of the law, emphasizing how innovation and technology can enhance access to justice for all Americans. Applicants were judged on overall writing ability, argument presentation, and persuasion.

Third Year Harvard Law School student Jacob Kovacs-Goodman will receive a $1,000 merit-based scholarship based on his achievements and essay discussing technology and innovation in the traditionally outdated field of law. In his words: “The future of law will burn brighter, especially if lawyers agree to wade into unfamiliar waters and bring new solutions to bear on their cases. Which, given law’s self-perception as a problem-solving field, should be an easy sell.” Talkov Law President Scott Talkov remarked that he was “pleased to offer this scholarship to such a dedicated and ambitious law student.”

Scholarship recipient Jacob Kovacs-Goodman is a California native who graduated from Stanford University in 2013 where he studied Classics. He is now a third year law student at Harvard Law School where he is studying the intersection of law and technology. His distinctive accomplishments, powerful essay, and genuine interest in technology and the law make him the ideal recipient for Talkov Law’s 2020 Future of the Law Scholarship.

After expressing his appreciation for being selected, Jacob humorously added that “remotely attending Harvard law school during the Covid-19 pandemic has been interesting. The Socratic method was occasionally interrupted by students whose cameras were off. One student had a bird on her shoulder. Another was cleaning his gun.”

The firm also selected Elizabeth Dayhuff as a runner up to receive a $500 merit-based scholarship. Elizabeth graduated from the University of Tennessee Knoxville in May 2020 and will begin her Juris Doctor education this coming fall.
