More Law Society bursaries
The Law Society has continually granted annual bursaries to law students for the 19 years since the promulgation of the Legal Practitioners Act in 1995, starting with five bursaries, increasing to ten bursaries per year since 2000.
The Society spends just over N$220,000 per year for all the bursaries together.
