College of Law launches Award Scheme for Top Graduates
- 01st August 2012
With the Olympics well underway, now’s the time for metallic themed announcements – and the College of Law hasn’t let us down.
This week the College of Law has launched a Gold Awards scheme (geddit?) for top performing graduates keen to enter the legal profession.
Tenuous link to the Olympics aside, the Gold Awards offer students who have achieved a first class honours undergraduate degree and who want to study the GDL at the College of Law the chance to receive financial support of up to £3,000.
The Gold Awards are open to students who accept a place on the course at any of the College’s eight centres nationwide by August 16 and will go towards the cost of their tuition fees. The aim of the scheme is to attract top class, non-law students to the legal profession.
Sarah Hutchinson, Board Member for Business Development at The College of Law, said: “At a time of economic difficulties for many students, we have created 60 Gold Awards to help give those non-law graduates, who are the most gifted in their specialist subject areas, the opportunity to pursue a career in law.”
