Freshfields Stephen Lawrence 2016 Scholarship awarded to an Exeter student
An Exeter Law School undergraduate has been awarded the Freshfields Stephen Lawrence 2016 Scholarship. The scheme, aimed at exceptionally talented first year undergraduate law students, seeks to address the disproportionate under-representation in large commercial law firms of black and black mixed race men. The scholarship is provided by global law firm Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer.
The undergraduate will participate in a development programme, and receive mentoring, a bursary, the opportunity to spend time at the firm during university holidays, and a guaranteed interview for a training contract at the firm. Radek Stech, Lecturer in Law and Director of Prizes, Bursaries and Scholarships says "This is the first time a Freshfields Stephen Lawrence Scholarship has been awarded to an Exeter student and it will mean the student will receive a greater insight into the legal profession."
Congratulations from the Dean, the Head of School and the Law Colleagues!
