Law School Bursaries for LLM Students

Lincoln Law School is very pleased to be offering two bursaries for students studying its LLM programmes in September 2014.

There will be two bursaries in total across both degree courses. One will be awarded to a student joining us from the UK or EU, and the other will be awarded to an International Student.

Worth £1,500 each, the bursaries will be awarded to students based on the merit of their application. To be eligible for the bursary you must apply for one of our LLM programmes by 1 June 2014 and enrol on that programme in September 2014.

Alumni Scholarship

Also… If you have studied at the University of Lincoln before, or are here at the moment, we want to help you to keep studying. That is why we have the University of Lincoln Alumni Scholarship – an award for students who have previously completed study here and wish to carry on at postgraduate level at Lincoln that is worth up to 30% off your course postgraduate fees.

For more information about this and other postgraduate funding options, see the Postgraduate Fees and Funding page on the main University website.

Information for our LLB Applicants

It is nearly time for you to make your decision on which University you would most like to attend in September. 

You will have already done plenty of research on LLB courses at Lincoln and elsewhere in the UK, and so you will know that studying for your LLB from the University of Lincoln is a great way to kick start your career in the legal sector.

Our degrees are challenging and will give you a good grounding in all the areas of law you need for a qualifying law degree as well as giving you choices so you can study areas you are interested in.  We have excellent links with the local community and profession so we give you opportunities to take the law out of the “dusty law book” and see how it works in real life.  We give you opportunities to be involved in real cases through our pro bono Law Clinic; you can present to schools through Street Law and run workshops through Master Classes. There are also opportunities to meet and learn from judges and other practitioners, both through talks and visits, as well as through our employer mentoring scheme.

We are not a large law school and we feel that is our greatest strength.  We can ensure that there is time available for students to receive the individual attention they need so each student is able to maximise his or her potential.  Our philosophy is that students work best when they are happy and relaxed so we foster an informal learning environment which builds your confidence in a friendly atmosphere.  Our weekly seminars allow in depth discussion of issues and encourage lively debate.

If you have any questions, or would just like a general chat about the course, the University, or Lincoln as a city, there are several ways to get in touch:

You can contact our LLB Admissions Tutor, Simon McCaffrey, on 01522 835615 or email

If you would prefer more of a face to face chat but can’t get onto campus Simon is available on Skype between 4-5pm on a Monday and Tuesday and would be more than happy to answer any questions. Just call him up. His Skype address is simon_mccaffrey.

You can also follow us on twitter @LincolnLaw – we’d love to engage with you over there.
