The scholarships from Family Law Partners – the Law Society's Medium Law Firm of the Year 2019 - will support candidates from poorer socio-economic backgrounds and/or black and black-mixed heritage to study law at the university.
This scholarship programme will provide economic support for six local law students during the entirety of their undergraduate studies. Additionally, Family Law Partners will provide mentoring opportunities through its family law specialists to help prepare students for future legal careers.
Robert Williams and Alan Larkin, Founding Directors of Family Law Partners said:
“We are thrilled to play an active role in supporting legal careers in the local community and assisting students who may find accessing higher education difficult.
