Lemberg Law Do-Not-Call-Complaints.Com Scholarship

Consumer law firm Lemberg Law is excited to offer scholarships to students who are inspired to learn more about consumer law issues and to further their education.

Get Creative!
We’re looking for students to creatively express their viewpoints, in video format, on do-not-call complaints. Here are some questions you can think about when planning your video (but you’re not required to answer any or all of them):


  • What is a robocall and why do companies use automated dialers?
  • What role can consumer attorneys play in curbing robocalls from debt collection agencies?
  • What would the world be like if there were no prohibitions against unwanted robocalls?
  • How do laws protect consumers from robocalls?
  • What can other students learn from watching your video?

Videos must be between one and three minutes long, and be submitted in one of the following file formats: .m4v, .wmv, .mp4, or .mov
All videos will become the property of Lemberg Law, and Lemberg Law may share or publish any submitted video.
Videos cannot contain any commercial music or copyrighted material.
