Interested in Commercial Law? Aiming to be a solicitor? Looking to gain a scholarship, work experience, or a mentoring scheme?
Then use this holiday to apply for an Aspiring Solicitors scholarship!
Aspiring Solicitors is a leading voice for change in the legal sector and aims to develop the talent of future solicitors from underrepresented groups. Aspiring Solicitors provides opportunities for mentoring, open days, competitions and events to help students succeed in vacation schemes and training contract applications!
There are 4 scholarships available:
- The Black Aspiring Solicitors Scholarship: for black students
- The Aspiring Solicitors Disability Scholarship: for students with a disability or long-term health condition
- The Asian Aspiring Solicitors Scholarship: for Asian students
- The Aspiring Solicitors LGBT+ Scholarship: for LGBTQ+ students
You can apply whether you study Law or not – the scholarships are open to first-year Law and penultimate year non-Law undergraduates.
Subject knowledge is only part of your employability: your Attributes, Skills, and Experience are all invaluable as well. In fact, half of all training contracts are awarded to non-Law students, so studying another subject won’t disadvantage you! Find out more about articulating your KASE and your employability with our interactive course.
You’ll need to apply (use the links above!) by 31st December and the winner will be announced in late January 2020! If you’re successful, you’ll be awarded

- A place on the AS First and AS Aspire coaching schemes 2020;
- Mentoring and lunch with AS Alumni. This will take place during one of the university holiday periods (Winter or Easter); and
