In return for the Award, the successful candidates agree to:
A mentoring system with our newly qualified solicitors is also established to give support and career guidance to the successful Candidates during their studies.
We are delighted that our first two successful candidates who were offered the Bursary in 2009 are due to graduate this year.
We now have eight students in total in the scheme and will shortly be reviewing applications for 2012.
"The Bird & Bird Bursary Programme has been one of the most beneficial experiences I have had the opportunity to participate in. The financial support that I received has contributed to the success that I have attained so far over the course of my degree as I have not had to divide my time between my studies and a part-time job. I am positive that the vital skills that I gained during my two week work experience will put me in good stead for when I eventually join the legal profession."

In October 2012, we hosted our first of three half-day workshops for ten Year 10 students at our London office where they attended networking training and we’ll be welcoming them back in February 2013 for the second workshop.
Towards the end of 2012, we will also host eight Year 12 students for a week’s work experience, where they’ll get the chance to work in various departments, exposing them to the range careers available within the legal sector.
The Pioneer Programme evolved from our Bursary, launched in 2009 which aims to encourage greater diversity in the legal profession.
