The Justinian Society of Philadelphia and its Foundation invite any law school student in his/her second year to submit a 750 – 1,000 word essay answering:  As an attorney, what will you do to fight against stereotyping and defamation of Italian-Americans in particular and people of all races, religions and cultures in general?
