Our goal is to provide funding for those who need it most—those from underrepresented groups in society who would otherwise struggle to afford tuition fees or other costs associated with studying law. With the help of our partners, we aim to increase diversity within the legal profession by supporting aspiring lawyers from all backgrounds and enabling them to fulfil their potential.
