Bird & Bird & Our Bursary Scheme

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 disadvantaged 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:
