College of Law launches new range of scholarships for 2012

The College of Law has launched a new range of scholarships for students undertaking the Graduate Diploma in Law (GDL), the Legal Practice Course (LPC) and its new undergraduate LLB law degree, which starts next year.

One full scholarship is available for each of the full-time GDL and LPC programmes starting in Autumn 2012. The lucky winners will have their entire course fees paid and can study at a College centre of their choice. In addition two runners-up on each programme will receive a £2,000 scholarship towards the cost of their fees.

Students accepting a place on the College’s new 2-year LLB starting in September 2012 can bid to win one of ten £3,000 scholarships to help towards their first year fee of £9,000.

Chief Executive of The College of Law, Professor Nigel Savage, says, "The College is a firm supporter of diversity in legal education and we take our responsibility to widen access to the legal profession very seriously. We already make substantial investment in our £3 million Pathways to Law scheme, which supports A-level students from disadvantaged backgrounds, as well as in the Law Society’s Diversity Access Scheme aimed at helping entrants facing substantial barriers to qualification. We are very pleased to extend our investment by launching this new scholarship scheme to support ambitious, talented students in achieving their goal of a successful career in the modern world of law.”

To apply for the GDL and LPC scholarship scheme students must have accepted a place on the full-time programme by Tuesday 31st January 2012. They need to submit an essay, short-video or other form of digital presentation by Tuesday 14th February 2012 on the subject: ‘My vision of the modern lawyer in the 21st century’.

LLB students need to have accepted their place by Tuesday 31st July 2012 to enter. The deadline for their submission is Monday 20th August 2012 and its subject ‘Why the world needs lawyers’ looks for their ideas about the role of lawyers in modern society.
