In 1984, the Law Foundation of Newfoundland and Labrador established funding for annual Law School Entrance Scholarships, in honour of the incorporation of the Law Society in 1834.

The scholarships, valued at $10,000 each for the 2023-24 academic year, are awarded to residents of Newfoundland and Labrador and are tenable for first year studies at any Canadian Law School recognized by the Scholarships Committee.


The 2023-24 application deadline is JUNE 1, 2023. Awards are primarily based on academic ability and will be announced before September 2023.
