Message from the Chairman of the Trustees
“My co-trustees and I are delighted to offer an opportunity for a year’s funded study in Canada, France or Spain. I hope that you will find all the information you need on this website. In particular, do have a look at the comments of previous scholars, and note the benefits they feel they obtained from their year’s study. The scholarship will cover fees and living expenses and recent scholarships have ranged between £14,000 and £28,000.
I hope that you will feel the opportunity of a legal sabbatical is worth following up, and that we may meet you at interview.”
