Aspiring Solicitors Foundation

Aspiring Solicitors Foundation

The Aspiring Solicitors Foundation is a social mobility charity providing crucial and timely financial assistance to young people who are aspiring solicitors. The charity’s goal is to remove financial barriers for individuals looking to enter the industry by funding scholarships, providing grants for equipment such as laptops, stationery and books, providing clothing for interviews and paying for transport to events and legal work experience. A career in the legal profession is often seen as an impossible dream by those from lower socio-economic backgrounds, no matter how strong their drive, dedication, and positivity. The ambition at the Aspiring Solicitors Foundation is to remove financial barriers that smart, ambitious, and energised young people can face when considering a career in the legal profession.
