Background to CMS

CMS is the 6th largest law firm in the world and has recently been named in The Times Top 100 Graduate Employers.  As well as supporting students in their university applications, our Law Scholarships offer students a chance to develop a relationship with us and start their journey into the legal profession.

The winners will receive £2,500 per year, for each year of their law degree, together with mentoring support and paid work experience with the firm. This is now our fifth year of awarding the bursary in Scotland and previous winners have gone on to study law at Aberdeen, Glasgow and Strathclyde.

How do pupils apply?

To enter the competition, we ask for a short essay and application form, which is to submitted by Wednesday 26 June 2019. You can find full details of the CMS Law Scholarships and how to apply on our website. A copy of our Rules for the competition in Scotland is below.
