The Lawscot Foundation helps academically talented students from less advantaged backgrounds in Scotland through their legal education journey. Their aim is to ensure that if individuals have drive and talent, money will not be a barrier to becoming a solicitor in Scotland.
If you are planning to study law in Scotland from autumn 2017 you can apply for financial assistance, mentoring and other support through the Lawscot Foundation. In order to be eligible 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 a Scottish university?
- Is your parental/guardian total annual income under £34,000 and/or do your circumstances mean you would be unable to attend university due to your financial situation? (This can include receiving EMA, free school meals, being in care or being a young carer)
