Sonjay Singh, a third-year student at Temple University Beasley School of Law, was recently named as the school’s 2019–2020 Stewart J. Eisenberg Scholar. The scholarship, endowed by our own Stewart Eisenberg, is given annually to the Temple Law student who has demonstrated outstanding achievement in trial advocacy and a strong desire in pursuing the career path of a trial lawyer.
“The legal education I received at what was then the Temple University School of Law helped mold me into the attorney I am today,” said Eisenberg, who graduated from the school in 1980, served on the Temple Law Review, and received the Barristers Award for Excellence in Trial Advocacy. “It is a pleasure to help the next generation of outstanding Temple Law students complete their studies so that they can enter the practice of law.”
Singh expects to graduate from Temple Law in May 2020 with a Juris Doctor and a Certificate in Trial Advocacy and Litigation. In addition to being named an Eisenberg Scholar, Singh was previously named the 2018–19 Joey Pozzuolo Memorial Scholar for his outstanding academic achievements, is a member of Temple’s National Trial Team having won First Place honors in the 2019 UPR Trial Advocacy Invitational.
During law school, Singh has interned at a prominent Los Angeles personal injury firm and at the Office of the District Attorney in Philadelphia. Prior to entering law school, Singh co-founded and served as chief operating officer of a recruiting and human resources technology startup that raised over $2,000,000 in outside investments. Singh graduated from Trinity College in May 2015 with a Bachelor of Arts in political science and American government.
