Net Lawman Scholarship Programme
Why Net Lawman provides scholarships
Net Lawman is a legal documents retailer, selling both templates that you can download and edit yourself and personalised contracts that are tailored to your circumstances based on your answers to web-based questionnaires.
We’ve been in business since 2001 and operate in 8 countries across the world.
We aim to reduce the barriers to legal protection that physical location, financial circumstances and knowledge of the law create for individuals and businesses.
We do that through our products and services, but also through supporting entrepreneurs and early stage businesses. For example, we’re a corporate partner to the UK Government sponsored Start Up Loans scheme, and a partner to entrepreneurial website Startacus.
We also want to support people who have great business ideas get them off the ground. Starting up, whether you’re selling a product you have designed, or selling your services takes some initial capital.
Our scholarship awards are designed to help students with start-up costs, whether investment in IT, stationery, business administration or learning tools.
What are the awards?
We have two awards each year:
One scholarship of £800 (eight hundred British pounds)
One scholarship of £500 (five hundred British pounds)
In addition, successful applicants will receive legal documents to the value of £250 (two hundred and fifty British pounds)
