Diversity Access Schemes

Law Society Diversity Access Scheme

Founded in 2004, the scheme supports outstanding individuals facing significant barriers to becoming a solicitor, whether the challenges are social, educational, personal or financial. Over 100 participants have benefited to date from support that covers full scholarship for the LPC, mentoring from practising lawyers and help to find work experience. A number of universities and colleges support the scheme and sponsorship is given by Eversheds, Hogan Lovells and Field Fisher Waterhouse, among others.
