The Law Society Diversity Access Scheme aims to improve social mobility in the legal profession by supporting promising entrants who also face exceptional social, educational, financial or personal obstacles to qualification.
The scheme offers successful applicants financial assistance with Legal Practice Course fees, access to relevant high quality work experience and a professional mentor.
Previous alumni have experienced time in local authority care, resisted coercion into arranged marriage, and battled for access to university and work experience with severe physical disabilities. Whatever their obstacles, all have shown tenacity, courage and commitment to furthering their career.
