What are CMS Law Scholarships?
At Top 10 Global law firm CMS, we believe that a career in law should be open to everyone with the right talents. We are committed to attracting and developing a new generation of the brightest and most creative legal minds. Since 2012, our scheme has been helping Year 12/S5/S6 students onto the path to the legal profession by providing financial support, mentoring support and paid work experience to students from across the UK.
Students from the CMS Law Scholarships scheme have gone on to study at some of the UK’s most prestigious universities, including Oxford and Cambridge, and to win training contracts to become lawyers at some of the world’s largest law firms, including CMS.
