Aspiring Solicitors are committed to increasing diversity in the legal profession. We also recognise the importance of scholarships, work experience and mentoring schemes so we thought we’d combine all three!
Our members can now access four different scholarships, namely:
The Aspiring Solicitors Asian Scholarship
The Aspiring Solicitors Black Scholarship
The Aspiring Solicitors Disability Scholarship
The Aspiring Solicitors LGBT+ Scholarship
These scholarships will be provided and co-ordinated by Aspiring Solicitors. The separate and distinct charity providing financial assistance to any aspiring solicitors throughout England and Wales, the Aspiring Solicitors Foundation, will remove financial barriers to entering the legal profession for aspiring solicitors from low income backgrounds. These funds will be available in January 2020.
