Scholarship programmes

Russell McVeagh offers law scholarships to both school leavers and university students.

The scholarship programme offers support while you're at university through a mentoring scheme, financial assistance, invitations to the firm's social events and a summer clerkship in your penultimate year of study. 

Applications for the Russell McVeagh School Leavers’ Scholarship and Russell McVeagh University Law Scholarship are now closed, and will reopen again in June 2015.
