The TRU Staffing Partners Scholarship Program is a merit-based program, and applications are considered independent of your financial need. This makes the essay component the key factor in your application, so take the time to be thoughtful in your essay.

Top 3 Tips For Writing Your TRU Scholarship Essay
  • Your writing skills are being evaluated, so you must doublecheck your grammar and spelling. Compose your email in Word where you can run a spellcheck before pasting it into the application.
  • The reviewers want to know how additional education or certification from the scholarship will help advance your career, so be sure to connect these dots explicitly.
  • Make it personal. Include an anecdote or some background information that shows your personality so that your application stands out from the crowd and becomes memorable.

For many, Legalweek is an exercise in rekindling and maintaining existing relationships, not making new ones. For buyers of software and services, the desire to find out of the box new solutions is a key driver for attendance.

Top 3 Takeaways From Legalweek New York 2018
  • AI and security remain the hot topics for legal technology in 2018 with GDPR and Information Governance also garnering significant attention with EU privacy deadlines.
  • There was tremendous buzz around cloud e-discovery software providers raising large amounts of venture capital, specifically Logikcull and Disco, as well as curiosity around how much market share they actually have captured away from the dominant player in the space, Relativity, whose RelativityOne offering continues to gain subscribers.
  • The vendor floor was at its thinnest in years with notable absences from household brand names in e-discovery, a lack of meaningful participation from the cybersecurity vendors, and less foot traffic from attendees. Many vendors had events off-site from the show to capitalize on the swarms of potential clients congregating in New York for the conference.
