We support the next generation of solicitors in Scotland.

We provide financial help through an annual bursary available to talented students from less-advantaged backgrounds in Scotland who are studying a law degree (known as the LLB) and plan to complete the diploma in professional legal practice at an accredited university in Scotland. We also offer mentoring throughout by an experienced Scottish solicitor; trainee solicitor or law student to help enhance the student’s confidence, skills and knowledge.

Here's why you should donate

What we do is most easily explained by showing who we've helped and why.

Watch our video below and meet Darren, one of our very first bursary recipients in 2017 and now a student at the University of Aberdeen. Growing up he acted as a young carer for his three younger siblings and hoped to become a lawyer in order to help others. This is Darren's story.
