Leonard Sainer Scholarship

Awarding Institution

University of London - University College London (UCL)

Deadline

February 05, 2021

Scholarship Award

15,000 GBP

Leonard Sainer was a law graduate of UCL (1929 – 1932) and went on to become a prominent City solicitor, the director of a number of public companies, and a generous philanthropist. He passed away in 1991.

The Foundation, which was set up in his memory (and which is administered by Dechert LLP), funds two scholarships each year at UCL to be awarded to final year law students (completing the LLB or LLM) or students who graduated in the 2018/19 academic year (LLB or LLM). The selected students must intend to practice law in England and Wales on a permanent basis – preferably one as a Solicitor, the other as a Barrister. Each scholarship will be in the amount of £15,000 and used towards the cost of full-time courses leading to final professional examinations, LPC or BPTC (currently approximately £15,000 [LPC] or £18,500 [BPTC] per annum).

To be eligible for this scholarship, you should be able to demonstrate that you meet the following criteria:

  • financial need or other instances of hardship;
  • a commitment to practice away from the large city and regional law firms and Commercial and Chancery chambers (which usually offer financial support) and instead to focus on social welfare law areas including family, criminal, immigration, housing law, etc;
  • the likelihood of achieving at least a 2:1 degree in the LLB examinations or a Merit in the LLM examinations;
  • Right to work in the UK.
