‘Learn with Lerners’ Bursary & Mentorship Program

At Lerners, we believe that diversity and equitable opportunity in the legal industry is integral to providing effective legal representation.

This program is offered to recent graduates of publicly funded secondary schools in Ontario, who are interested in careers in the legal services industry and plan to attend college or university in the 2024-25 academic year.

Our program is designed to financially assist racialized students in their first year of post-secondary education by awarding a $5000.00 bursary in addition to 12 months of invaluable mentorship with a Lerners Lawyer. Building on prior years’ success, we will be selecting (2) bursary recipients in 2024.
