Access To Law SQE Scholarship

Our Access To Law SQE Scholarship will close to applications on 31 May 2024.

The Access To Law SQE Scholarship has been created to support future legal professionals from all backgrounds, who would have otherwise been unable to study law. 

At Law Training Centre we are advocates of social mobility and increased diversity within the legal profession. Our mission is to break down traditional barriers that prevent learners from accessing a legal education. Our goal is to widen access to careers within law and create a legal market that is diverse, flexible, multi-skilled, and reflective of current market demands. 

Our Access To Law SQE Scholarship is designed to be inclusive and help as many learners as possible.  

Even if you’re not sure if you would qualify, please get in touch and our team will be able to talk through the options available to you.
