Fair Rate Lawsuit Funding Scholarship

Scholarship Description

Why Lawsuit Settlement Funding?

Fair Rate Funding is an industry leader in the pre settlement funding business.  The mission is to provide immediate liquidity to litigants who need money to pay for such things as medical treatment, car payments, mortgage payments, rent, utilities, or any expenditure plaintiffs must meet before their lawsuit reaches its conclusion.

The litigation process takes time, sometimes years.  Lawsuit cash advances removes some financial pressure off litigants.  The money can be used for anything and does not have to be repaid if there is no recovery.

Fair Rate Funding is run by legal professionals for the benefit of litigants.  We exist to help plaintiffs level the playing field against much larger adversaries with much more financial backing.

Because we invest in lawsuits, attorneys are a large piece of the puzzle.  We endeavor to support this profession in the form of this scholarship that can be applied to any accredited law school or paralegal program.  The winner will be chosen based upon his/her answer to the following question:

  Why is lawsuit funding an important piece of the legal landscape?
  What benefits do pre-settlement loans offer litigants, attorneys, and the entire field of law?

Of course, we, at Fair Rate Funding have our own opinion.  We want to hear your opinion.
