UCC law students awarded RDJ scholarships

The first recipients of the Ronan Daly Jermyn (RDJ) diversity scholarship have been named.

The funds support students from minority ethnic backgrounds studying law at UCC, with the aim of encouraging diversity in the legal profession.


RDJ has donated €40,000 over four years for the scholarships, which will be awarded to two UCC School of Law students each year, beginning with this academic year (2021/22).

Imamma Eunice Ikebuasi and Laya Little were chosen as the first scholarship recipients following a competitive selection process based on exam results, a personal statement, a 1,000-word essay discussing the topic: ‘The Need for Diversifying the Legal Profession in Ireland’, and an interview.
