Global law firm CMS has opened applications for this year's law scholarships scheme offered by the firm, which aims to help those from less advantaged backgrounds pursue a law degree and then a legal career.

Since 2012, the scheme has been helping senior school students from across the UK onto the path to the legal profession by providing financial support, mentoring support and paid work experience through their legal education and training.

Students from the CMS Law Scholarships scheme have gone on to study at prestigious UK universities, including Oxford and Cambridge, and to win training contracts at some of the world’s largest law firms, including CMS.

The process begins with an essay competition which for students in Scotland closes on 22 July 2020.
