Bisnar Chase Awards $1,000 Scholarship to Law Student in Need
Bisnar Chase will award Benita Hudson, a second year student at the Nashville School of Law, a $1,000 scholarship to pursue her dream of building a successful family law practice geared to helping low-income families.

Hudson was selected from an exceptional national pool of applicants, based on the essay she wrote detailing how she plans to make the law community a better place. She is the child of Russian immigrants and concentration-
"What I truly want to do through the assistance of the Bisnar Chase Legal Scholarship is to determine whether I can build a successful and sustaining law practice with a legal specialty in family law, focusing on the reinstatement of lost parental rights," she said. "Ideally I want to gear my practice to low-income families by keeping my legal fees within the range of my target client."
Hudson, a wife and mother of two young children, is pursuing her law degree while working two jobs – as a litigation paralegal and as a substitute teacher in an inner-city public school – while her husband is also attending school. She expects to graduate with a law degree in May 2017.
In her essay, Hudson also talked about donating plasma cells in a center located in one of Nashville's sketchiest neighborhoods. With these donations, she said, she makes an extra $70 a week, which goes toward her school expenses.
It is this unstoppable drive to help herself and others that made Hudson stand out during the selection process, said Brian Chase, senior partner at Bisnar Chase.
"It's an honor and privilege for our law firm to support someone like Benita Hudson, who is so passionate about helping others. Her essay not only showed us what she has been able to accomplish so far in her life in the face of adversity, but also her willingness to persist and fight. We applaud her indomitable spirit and wish her very best in all her endeavors."
