In 2009, we launched our Bursary Scheme, a legal scholarship programme that seeks to address the financial hurdle that often deters bright people from socially deprived areas of the country from attending University.

Our Bursary Scheme offers:

• An award paid in instalments over your three years at University to help with living expenses or other expenses incurred whilst studying.

• A mentoring scheme with our current trainee solicitors to give support and career guidance during your studies.

• Three workshops a year in the Bird & Bird office in London for the duration of the undergraduate degree.

• A week's work experience during your first year of university.
