Lawscot Foundation

The Lawscot Foundation aims to support academically talented students from less-advantaged backgrounds in Scotland through their legal education journey. We believe that social mobility is a challenge that everyone must help to tackle.

The Foundation is here to help make dreams come true for pupils who have the drive and talent to become lawyers of the future, but lack the finances to do so. We also want to help make the workplace less daunting: by setting up mentoring relationships and offering work shadowing opportunities. This isn’t just about helping people pursue a career. This is about changing people’s lives. Some of the young people who have applied have faced unimaginable challenges at such a young age – being in care; being a carer for their parents or siblings; being made homeless; poverty. Yet they’ve worked hard and achieved great exam results. The Lawscot Foundation is an incredibly important way of showing these young people that we support them and believe in their future.

Help us make dreams a reality.
