The Beverly Hills Bar Foundation, with a history of over 50 years of scholarship support for law students in Southern California, awards the Annual Rule of Law Writing Competition Scholarship for a written work that promotes appreciation and understanding of the rule of law. The competition encourages law students to integrate Rule of Law concepts into their writings, but does not seek any particular point of view on the Rule of Law.
