Collas Crill operates a bursary scheme to provide financial assistance to Jersey and Guernsey residents who are interested in a career as a lawyer.
Applicants wishing to apply for a bursary are not limited to those taking a law degree. It is the intention to become a lawyer that is important rather than the degree course being followed. Collas Crill will consider applications for support of courses leading to degree level studies (non-law degrees included) and/or to post graduate studies with a law content such as PgDL, LPC or BPTC.
What will the firm provide?
The bursary is worth £2,250 per annum and is paid in three installments, with the first payment being made at the beginning of the academic year, the second in January and the final payment in May. The firm also offers up to 4 weeks paid work experience per year.
Throughout the period of the payment of the bursary, the student will be allocated a mentor who will be available to the student to give general advice and assistance with regard to the options available to the student on course modules, post-graduate work, work experience placements, the work that the firm is doing etc. Where the student is offered holiday work, a reasonable cross-section of the various departments of the firm will be experienced over the period of the bursary award.
The payment of the bursary will be reviewed annually.
Who can apply?
As a guide, A’ Level applicants will be expected to achieve a minimum of 136 UCAS points while students who are undertaking degree level studies will be expected to achieve a 2.1 each year of their study as well as positive appraisal feedback in order to receive continued support throughout their degree and / or to post graduate studies with a law content such as the LPC.
In addition to the academic side, we look for Bursary Students to display the same qualities as anyone we recruit – a willingness to work hard, be a good team player, display good communication skills and to have a 'can do' attitude.
Collas Crill is accredited by the Solicitors' Regulation Authority to provide Training Contracts for those wishing to qualify as Solicitors (of England and Wales) and many of our Bursary Students go on to secure Training Contracts with us.
It is a condition of any award that the recipient is not in receipt of any financial award or assistance from any other business without the express approval of Collas Crill.
