Scholarships & Prizes

There are two competitions for Major Scholarships each year:

  • for the Bar Course
  • for the Graduate Diploma in Law (GDL) course or equivalent.

The Inn also offers scholarships for post-Bar Course placements in overseas jurisdictions, essay prizes, support for five places on the South-Eastern Circuit Advocacy Course (‘Keble course’), and a pupillage hardship fund.

In 2019, the Inn awarded £1.3 million in scholarships. The majority of this funding (over £1.1 million) was awarded to students undertaking the Bar Course.  The remainder is earmarked for scholarships for the law conversion course, pupillage support, and some smaller awards for post-Bar Course activities.
