Prizes

The City Law School Memorial Prizes

In addition to the fee based scholarships we offer, each course also has a number of memorial prizes available. Each prize is course specific and available to all students enrolled on that course in any given year.

Externally Funded Gifts and Prizes

We work very closely with the profession and other relevant bodies and organisations and as such can offer students on all courses a number of externally funded gifts and prizes. There are currently around 30 different prizes on offer varying in value from £50 up to £5,000.

Graduate Loyalty Discount

Once you have studied at City we are sure you will want to stay with us to progress to the next stage of your legal training. As an added incentive, we offer City students a loyalty discount upon enrolling on a second course here at the School. All you need to do is meet the entry requirements for your second course (postgraduate level) and we will automatically take 10% off of your tuition fees.

This can be received in addition to receiving a scholarship and will be applied to the second round of payments due.
