Lawscot Foundation Applications Go Live!

The application window for the Lawscot Foundation is now live. This opportunity is invaluable to students who are interested in pursuing a career in law who may otherwise not be able to attend without some support. We are committed to supporting talented young people who show drive and determination who have the potential to excel as a Scottish solicitor. We give priority to individuals from less-advantaged backgrounds, so students’ social and economic situation will be taken into consideration.

  • Do you have an offer to study law (known as the LLB) at a Scottish university* starting in 2022?
  • 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 or college within the last two years (but not currently attending university)?
