In 2009, we launched our Bursary Scheme, a legal scholarship programme that seeks to address the financial hurdle that often deters bright people from socially deprived areas of the country from attending University.
Our Bursary Scheme offers:
- An award paid in instalments over your three years at University to help with living expenses or other expenses incurred whilst studying.
- A mentoring scheme with our current trainee solicitors to give support and career guidance during your studies.
- A week's work experience during your first year of University
Hear from two of our future trainees on how the Bursary Scheme has supported them:
