Timetable

Applications for the Bar Course Scholarships for 2020/21 will shortly be open. Applications for the GDL Scholarships will open in mid-March 2021 and close on the first Friday of May 2021.

There are two competitions for Major Scholarships each year: one for the Graduate Diploma in Law (GDL), or equivalent conversion course, and one for the Bar Course.

Applications for both GDL scholarships and Bar Course scholarships become available on the website usually about 6 weeks before the closing date.
