Legal Scholarship 2023

Applications for the 2024 Legal Scholarships open 1 March 2024

PCL Lawyers is dedicated to helping students grow and succeed in their legal careers.

We are offering a scholarship to students currently studying a Bachelor of Laws or a JD at an Australian university in their final or penultimate year.

We are looking to help students who wish to work with SMEs, individuals, and organisations. PCL Lawyers has had strong growth since it’s beginnings and we owe that to the quality work we do for our clients and the care we take in providing them relevant and pertinent legal advice.

This means understanding the pressures clients face, and the commercial requirements that business owners face. We encourage students to think about a career helping SME clients and individuals in family law matters.

As commercially minded lawyers we take a pragmatic approach to our legal advice. Our clients get the best results not only through a strict legal lens but also by taking into consideration of their commercial considerations as well.

We are offering a Law Student, with a WAM of 70 or more, a grant of $6,000 to assist them through the final stage of their degree.
