FLPA and the College of Law is excited to announce a brand new scholarship for young family lawyers and law graduates for 2020 – the FLPA and College of Law Practical Legal Training Student Scholarship.
The winner of the scholarship will receive the equivalent of the fee for undertaking the College of Law Practical Legal Training course and $1,000 cash.
In announcing the new scholarship, FLPA president James Steel and College of Law Executive Director Ann-Maree David said the scholarship winner will also receive mentoring and a work experience placement over the course of College of Law PLT with a FLPA experienced member to help the winning student attain the practical legal training component required for completion of the course requirements.
The College of Law PLT course is the leading program in Australia for law graduates preparing for admission to practice and is worth almost $10,000. Coupled with the cash prize and the mentoring opportunities, this scholarship is an outstanding opportunity for young practitioners.
