Two bursaries will be available annually, offering financial assistance in the following ways:

For undergraduates entering the final year of their law degree and then continuing studies towards the Legal Practice Course (LPC).

For non-law graduates wishing to study towards the Graduate Diploma in Law (GDL) and then the LPC.

Each award will represent a two-year financial commitment from Appleby, alongside the potential opportunity to carry outplacement work during the summer break to aid the development of their legal careers. Each student will be considered for a training contract with the firm at the end of their studies.

Faye Moffett, Managing Partner of Appleby Isle of Man, said: “We have already established ourselves as a firm with an excellent track record of training advocates with 60% of our lawyers having trained with us. We believe we have a responsibility to invest in, grow and develop local student talent for the long term in our local community and this bursary scheme is the first step in achieving this.

“As the Islands’ largest law firm we hope the targeted investment in professional development will provide a pivotal opportunity for students who wish to return to the Isle of Man.”

Mark Emery, Associate and Appleby’s bursary ambassador, said: “Having been a local student who trained with the firm myself, I am thrilled that Appleby is offering this opportunity to the upcoming generation of legal advocates. I am thoroughly looking forward to supporting this scheme and watching the bursary students’ careers thrive through this initiative.”

Appleby is proud to be the first to contribute to the overall development of promising legal talent in the community.

Appleby’s Isle of Man office is one of the longest established legal practices in the island, comprising of 70 staff including nine partners, and 30 highly trained and experienced lawyers.
