The Roythornes Bursary Scheme

Roythornes Law Bursary Scheme

Roythornes is a highly successful commercial practice with a strong focus on agriculture and rural estates, the food sector and commercial property. Our reputation is based on providing practical and comprehensive solutions to complex challenges.

We are in the top 200 firms in the UK and our expert teams are regularly featured in the Legal 500 – one of the most respected guides to law firms.

Our client base is national but we are an integral part of the community in which we are based and as such we would like to open up an amazing opportunity, to local pupils, to have our support when they are embarking on a career in law.

Our training is second to none and in 2017 we won six Lex 100 awards.

How we can help your law career with Roythornes

We want to make a career in law more accessible to local students who aspire to become lawyers, by awarding up to two bursaries annually which will pay £4,500 a year, for each year. This bursary will help two individuals, significantly, towards the cost of their tuition fees to do a law degree. We hope this will be the start of a journey for our chosen students to becoming lawyers and having a great career with us at Roythornes.

We will also offer paid work experience, while studying, to those who are successful. At the end of your degree we would hope to offer you support with your LPC (we currently contribute up to £10,000 to the fees) and a training contract.
