Wagner & Wagner Attorneys at Law Awards First Academic Scholarship to Vincent Jackson

Wagner & Wagner has selected law student Vince Jackson as the recipient of the first Annual Civil Justice Scholarship Award.

Chattanooga, TN, United States - July 18, 2019 /MarketersMedia/ —

Wagner & Wagner Attorneys at Law is proud to announce that Vincent Jackson has been selected to receive the Wagner & Wagner Annual Civil Justice Scholarship Award. This is the first year that the scholarship has been awarded.

“Vincent Jackson is an extraordinary young student,” said partner Michael Wagner. “We have gotten to know him quite well, and we believe that he is the ideal recipient for our inaugural award. Our firm has served Chattanooga since 1945, and we believe that it is important to support the education of young lawyers, as a way to keep our justice system strong. We expect great things from Vince.”

About Vincent Jackson

Mr. Jackson is a legal intern and a 2L student at Lincoln Memorial University Duncan School of Law. He is a Tennessee native, and an accomplished classical guitarist. Mr. Jackson’s essay for the scholarship, on the topic of an injured plaintiff’s right to be compensated, was an exploration of the concept of “duty,” and the historic, codified roots of what that means in a civil society. His conclusion – that without the balance provided by a civil justice system, society could descend into chaos – echoes the belief of the firm: that protecting the rights of the injured is the ethical thing to do. This in-depth and nuanced perspective of why plaintiffs’ rights must be protected spoke to Mr. Jackson’s willingness to do the work required of any young lawyer. For this reason, among others, he was chosen as this year’s recipient.

Chinese pop stars publicly back Beijing on Hong Kong

Aug 24, 2019

HONG KONG — At least eight pop stars from mainland China and one each from Taiwan and Hong Kong are publicly stating their support for Beijing's one-China policy, eliciting a mixture of disappointment and understanding from fans. Many of the statements came after protesters opposed to Beijing's growing influence over semi-autonomous Hong Kong removed a Chinese flag and tossed it into Victoria Harbour earlier this month. Lay Zhang, Jackson Wang, Lai Kuan-lin and Victoria Song were among the K-pop singers who recently uploaded a Chinese flag and declared themselves as "one of 1.4 billion guardians of the Chinese flag" on...

US urges increased caution for Americans visiting Hong Kong

Aug 24, 2019

HONG KONG — The U.S. government on Thursday stepped up its warnings to travelers to Hong Kong because of increasing violence surrounding pro-democracy protests in the Chinese city. The State Department's Level 2 travel advisory issued Thursday urges "increased caution in Hong Kong due to civil unrest" and tells travelers to avoid demonstrations and to "exercise caution if unexpectedly in the vicinity of large gatherings or protests." The protests were sparked two months ago by proposed extradition legislation that could have seen suspects sent to mainland China, where protesters say they could face torture and unfair politicized trials. They have...
