Other eligibility requirements

The Lawscot Foundation is committed to supporting talented young people, who have the potential to benefit from and contribute to the legal profession. Their aim is to ensure that, if you have drive and talent, money will not be a barrier to becoming a solicitor in Scotland. The Lawscot Foundation will give priority to individuals from less-advantaged backgrounds, so your social and economic situation will be taken into consideration.

The support offered will be a bursary each year of the LLB degree and the postgraduate Diploma (the awards may vary but could be around £2,500 per year, totalling up to £12,500 by completion of the qualifications). Just as important will be the opportunity to be supported by a mentor working in the legal profession throughout university. As well as the bursary, this is a career development programme and all successful applicants are expected to participate in a programme of events throughout the year.

How to apply

Application requirements

    In order to be eligible to apply, you need to be able to answer yes to the following questions:

    • Do you have an offer to study law (known as the LLB) at Abertay University starting in the coming year? If you have a conditional offer, we recommend you apply for the bursary, but the offer of a bursary will be conditional on the offer of a place on the LLB course.
    • Do your circumstances mean you would be unable to attend university due to your financial situation?
    • Are you currently at school or college, or have left school/college within the last two years (but not currently attending university)?                                                         

    Once you submit your application, all of the information provided will be considered before deciding who to make an offer of a bursary to.
