Last Updated: 19 January 2016

Students and trainees should submit their application to the Ogier Bursary Scheme and Trainee Solicitor Programme by 31 January to be considered for a place on the 2016 schemes.

The law firm has issued a final call for applications from Channel Island students in Year 13 (or equivalent), or higher education to apply for the schemes which offer financial help and practical support, together with the formal training required by students aiming to become lawyers.

Ogier's Group Resourcing Manager Carla Jost said: "Our Bursary is awarded to a number of students in Jersey and Guernsey each year. This is ideal for students embarking on a career in law, who want valuable work experience as well as financial help.

Ogier's Bursary scheme is open to students due to sit their A Levels (or equivalent) in 2016, as well as students already at university or undertaking GDL / LPC / Bar School studies.

"Our England & Wales Trainee Solicitor programme is a two year training contract which provides the formal training required  to enable individuals to qualify as a Solicitor of England & Wales. This programme is very competitive and akin to the training contracts in the City, being fully regulated by the SRA."

Ogier's requirements for applicants of both schemes, depending on their stage of development, are:

  • Two A grades and one B Grade at A-Level or higher, or the equivalent in UCAS points.
  • A degree classification of 2:1 or above.
  • Minimum of a Commendation at GDL level
  • Minimum of a Commendation in your LPC

To apply please contact before 31 January 2016.
