What is it?
This is a grant that provides an extra £4,000 to anyone studying the LPC / SQE who is experiencing financial difficulties as a result of personal circumstances. It is supplied on top of our standard maintenance grant with its purpose being to help ensure that the cost of qualifying as a Solicitor does not pose a barrier to entering the profession. It’s also evidence of our commitment to improving social mobility and increasing the diversity of candidates who apply for a training contract.
Baker McKenzie future trainees can submit an application to apply for the Baker Boost grant from three months ahead of starting the LPC / SQE course, up to their training contract start date.
