College of Law launches new scholarships
The College of Law has launched two new scholarships for its BPTC students to help the aspiring barristers with their fees.
The College of Law has launched these awards for students undertaking the Bar Professional Training Course (BPTC) starting in Autumn 2012.
There is one full scholarship available to cover the entire course fees of the full-time programme - and the winner can study at either the College’s London Bloomsbury or Birmingham centre. There is also one £2,000 scholarship available towards the cost of tuition fees.
These two new scholarships follow the College of Law’s recent launch of scholarships for the full-time Graduate Diploma in Law and Legal Practice Course postgraduate programmes, as well as for its new undergraduate LLB law degree, which starts in September 2012.
Chief Executive of The College of Law, Professor Nigel Savage, says, “It is in the interests of the legal profession and the application of justice in this country that the Bar is open to all and reflects the diversity of the community that it serves. Our new BPTC scholarships will help to make a career as a barrister more accessible to the most ambitious and talented students.”
To apply for one of these scholarships students must have accepted a place on the full-time programme at either the Bloomsbury or Birmingham centre by Tuesday 20th March. They need to submit an essay, short video or other form of digital presentation by Tuesday 27th March on the subject: ‘The modern Bar: diverse and open to all? Discuss’.
