Maples and Calder (Ireland) LLP, the Maples Group's law firm has announced two new Irish university partnerships with University College Cork (UCC) and Dublin City University (DCU), offering students access to third level education and workplace opportunities.
The 'Maples Group Scholarship – LLM in Business Law' will benefit one UCC postgraduate student studying for the LLM in Business Law each year, with each successful student receiving a scholarship of €5,000.
To be eligible for the scholarships, students must secure a minimum of a 2.1 grade in an approved primary degree or equivalent; have applied for the LLM in Business Law programme via the UCC applications system, and have received an offer and accepted a place.
The judging panel will include a representative from the Maples Group and recipients will be selected based on an interview and the submission of a short personal statement.
The Maples Group is also supporting the DCU Access to the Workplace Programme this year and the firm has offered a DCU Access student a place in their virtual professional internship this summer.
Graduate recruitment partner Patrick Quinlan said: "We genuinely believe in nurturing talent, and want to encourage students to consider having successful and fulfilling careers in the legal sector."
