As part of our Corporate Social Investment (CSI) Programme, Webber Wentzel offers ten scholarships of ZAR 30,000 each to dedicated South African law students.
The scholarship is expected to cover tuition and housing fees and the costs of textbooks.
Students must be South African citizens and registered for their penultimate year of study towards an LLB degree.
Academic excellence is the primary criterion that will be taken into account in awarding scholarships.
Other factors that may be considered in appropriate cases include:
If an applicant is successful, the scholarship will be re-awarded for his or her final year of study provided his or her conduct remains satisfactory and that he or she passes all subjects with an acceptable mark in the minimum prescribed period.
Recipients of scholarships are people who we believe have the potential to become successful Webber Wentzel lawyers, and will be required to participate in vacation work programmes.
Webber Wentzel will consider employing scholarship recipients as candidate attorneys when they graduate, depending on their academic achievements and the existence of suitable vacancies. Scholarship recipients who are offered employment by Webber Wentzel are obliged to accept on terms no less favourable than the terms offered to all other first-year candidate attorneys employed by the firm in that year.
