McMahon Law Studentships
A candidate must be a member of the College who bona fide intends to prepare for practice in the profession of the law, and intends to commence a course for the Bar or Law Society final examinations or for the Common Professional Examination. A member of the College who has been placed in the first or upper second class (or is judged to have reached that standard) in each Approved Examination taken may be elected to a studentship, but the McMahon Law Studentships Committee may recommend for election a member of the College who has not met that condition if they consider that an exception should be made in his or her case.
Candidates should note that the purpose of the McMahon Fund is provide default funding in the event that they fail to obtain funding from other sources for the Common Professional Examinations, Legal Practice Course or the Bar Professional Training Course. Candidates who intend to qualify for the Bar will generally be expected to have applied for a scholarship from one of the Inns of Court for assistance in the funding of their study for the Common Professional Examinations or the Bar Professional Training Course.
Please find below this year’s notice and the application form. The closing date for applications is 30th June 2023.
