    Any S5/S6 or Y12/Y13 students at state schools who are thinking of studying Law at uni/ practicing Law in the future should take a look at this competition by CMS Cameron McKenna (now Scotland's largest law firm with three offices, and other offices all around the world in over 30 different countries across the globe). https://www.allhires.com/CMSCMCK/Pos...=%2fCMSCMCK%2f

    If you are successful they they give you £2,500 during each year of your law degree and provide you with practical help throughout the UCAS process. It certainly helped me and I think Scottish students could benefit immensely from the scheme. All you need to do is write a short essay!

    I went on to this and I was entering the general details and the leaving year for school was only upto 2014; however I am leaving in 2015? I'm applying for University this year; will I wait until they open up a new bursary competition for 2015 entry?
    Thanks

    I think that will be fine. The rules stipulate that it is for those in their second final or final year of school, and also that they haven't yet applied to university but are planning to during the 2014-2015 UCAS cycle (i.e after this Summer). For instance I entered in 2013, won a bursary and am now going to university in 2014. Perhaps there is something wrong with the system, it should be 2015 and not 2014. If you have any other questions or need help about how to approach the competition then feel free to ask me .

    I'm actually devastated, I never knew the end date until today - it was in July :// I've emailed them my essay regardless, worth a try I guess
