About UK’s Law Training Centre
UK’s Law Training Centre has initiated the ‘Open To All Scholarship‘. This pioneering program strives to democratize legal education, transcending financial constraints and geographical boundaries. Commencing on August 1, 2023, the scholarship welcomes global aspirants, encompassing individuals from India as well.
This scholarship envisions dismantling economic hindrances, providing an avenue for individuals from diverse societal spectra to access legal education. It envelopes a spectrum of courses, endowing grants of up to ã1,558 (Rs 164 lakhs), contingent upon the chosen program. With an uncomplicated application process and a flexible timeline, the initiative echoes the centre’s resolute inclusivity commitment.
A Global Opportunity
The introduction of the ‘Open To All Scholarship‘ marks a pivotal stride in the democratization of legal education. According to Eve Dullabh, Co-founder and Director of Education at the Law Training Centre, “Having personally experienced the invasive nature of many scholarship and bursary applications, which can be disheartening, we aimed to adopt an entirely distinct approach.”
This endeavor unlocks an avenue for global learners, including those based in India, to pursue remote legal studies and attain qualification for legal practice in the UK. This development follows the formalization of a memorandum of understanding among the Bar Council of India, The Bar Council of England and Wales, and the Law Society of England and Wales. This collaborative effort seeks to fortify cooperation and enhance legal interchange between these entities.
