Linklaters raises maintenance grants for its LPC and GDL students
13 March 2013
Linklaters is to raise the maintenance grants it pays its future trainees by 40 per cent, reflecting the firm's commitment to attract and reward the very best.
Linklaters LPC students – who complete a seven-month course at the College of Law in London – currently receive a grant of £5,000. As from 1 April 2013, this will rise to £7,000. Students on the year-long Graduate Diploma in Law (GDL) course, which can be studied at any College of Law campus across the UK, are to see their maintenance grants increased from £7,000 to £8,000 if studying in London and from £6,000 to £7,000 if studying elsewhere.
Simon Branigan, Linklaters graduate recruitment partner, said:
“We want to attract the best people, no matter what their background. Over recent years we have made a strong commitment to participating in a range of social mobility access schemes designed to reach students from a diverse range of backgrounds. We are aware that many of our future trainees cannot rely on financial support from their families and we are keen to support them so they can focus on achieving a good standard of results from law school, rather than worrying about money.”
