We help academically talented students from less-advantaged backgrounds in Scotland through their legal education journey. This means offering financial assistance, mentoring and other support during the law degree stage (known as the LLB) right through the Diploma in Professional Legal Practice.

We were set up by the Law Society of Scotland in 2016 as part of their work on ‘fair access to the legal profession’.

What we do
We provide financial help through an annual bursary available to talented students from less advantaged backgrounds in Scotland.
