Applications for the Law Society Diversity Access Scheme, which offers financial assistance for the Legal Practice Course, will close at midday on next Friday 28 March 2014.

The application form, full information about the criteria for the scheme, process and timetable can be found on the Junior Lawyers Division website.

The Diversity Access Scheme (DAS) offers assistance with Legal Practice Course (LPC) fees to exceptional individuals who face or have overcome exceptional obstacles to qualify as a solicitor. Obstacles may be of a financial, social, educational or personal nature, or might relate to a disability or chronic health condition that makes the goal of qualifying as a solicitor a particularly challenging one.

The scheme also provides successful applicants with work experience and mentoring opportunities. Information about those previously helped by the scheme, including a short video, can be found on the Diversity Access Scheme page.

Please note:

  • The Diversity Access Scheme is the only source of financial assistance for legal education fees from the Law Society. Therefore no funding is available from the Law Society for the law degree, GDL, CPE, LLM or any other courses.
