Sale of Legal Post delivers cash benefits for talented Scottish students

Academically gifted students from less advantaged backgrounds in Scotland are set to benefit from a game-changing quarter of a million pound investment through the Lawscot Foundation.

The Law Society of Scotland has donated the proceeds of the May 2016 sale of Legal Post to the foundation; a charity established in 2016 to help talented students through their legal education journeys by providing bursaries and mentoring support.

Following a takeover by DX, the Law Society of Scotland sold its shareholding in Legal Post for £261,585 – having originally bought it for a nominal £20. The society’s council has agreed that the total value should be donated to the Lawscot Foundation.
