As a student finishing up studies, you will soon begin to interact with the government in myriad ways. From applying for a license to engage in your career to filing your taxes or complying with other regulatory entities, the government is an ever-present part of our lives as citizens.
We want students to explore the ways that government requirements and regulations can help and hinder them in the future. That’s why Bertolino LLP has initiated our Government Regulatory Impact Scholarship.
One winner will be awarded $2,500 toward their ongoing education.

At Bertolino LLP, we help people protect their professional license and livelihood when they must interact with the government. This typically occurs when applying for a professional, occupational, or vocational license, or when responding to a regulatory complaint.
Describe a situation in which a person needs to interact with the government (federal, state or local), how this impacts the person individually and citizens collectively, and how the relationship with government has changed in the past 50 years. Is this change good or bad and why?
