Macfarlanes is committed to removing financial barriers that can hinder students from accessing the legal profession. The Macfarlanes bursary is a financial support package open to socially-mobile undergraduates attending any UK university.
We have designed the bursary to account for the financial demands of being a university student and prospective trainee solicitor.
We have designed our application forms so that they are as straightforward as possible. We encourage you to include as much information as you can, so that we can understand your needs. If you need advice at any stage of your application, please contact our graduate recruitment team.
The technology grant is available to those who need support accessing technology. We will consider all reasonable requests for any form of technology, whether that is a laptop, a WiFi connection or any other devices or accessories. We may award a sum which covers all or part of the purchase, depending on the request.
Any person currently enrolled, or with a place confirmed, on an undergraduate course at any UK university.
To apply, please complete an application form. On the application form, you will be asked to outline what your technology needs are and how access to this technology will support your journey towards a career in law.
The participation grant is available to undergraduates attending a Macfarlanes event who need to miss work to attend.
Working students who meet our social mobility criteria and can demonstrate they are missing work to attend a Macfarlanes event.
To apply, please complete an application form. You will also need to provide evidence that you are scheduled to work.
