Hard-up College of Law students have been given the chance to win a Legal Practice Course (LPC) bursary from Berrymans Lace Mawer, set up by the firm in memory of a former lawyer.

The firm launched the Tracy Kaye/Berrymans Lace Mawer Memorial Bursary in memory of Tracy Kaye who lived in York and was a dedicated member of the firm’s Leeds office, specialising in personal injury litigation, before her tragic death in 2006.

Senior partner of Berrymans’ Leeds office Chris Coughlin said during her time with the firm Kaye made a huge difference to many people, especially assisting and giving encouragement to the more junior members of the team.

“Tracy was such a caring and helping individual, who was much loved, and this bursary is a way of helping those students who are finding it difficult financially to carve out a successful career like Tracy had,” said Coughlin.

The annual £1,500 award is open to all College of Law students who have accepted an LPC place at the York campus.

Applications for the prize should be in by 29 May and students have to demonstrate that their financial position would make it difficult to further their legal studies without the bursary.
