The Lawscot Foundation aims to support academically talented students from less-advantaged backgrounds in Scotland through their legal education journey. While certainly not exclusive to the legal profession, social mobility is a challenge that everyone must help to tackle.
We’re here to help pupils who have the drive and talent to become lawyers of the future, but lack the finances to do so. We also want to make joining the legal profession a bit less daunting: by setting up mentoring relationships and offering work shadowing opportunities. This isn’t just about helping people pursue a particular career. 
Who we are

We are a Scottish charity, supporting the next generation of solicitors.  We help academically talented students from less advantaged backgrounds in Scotland through their legal education journey.
