This form is intended for law firms applying for funding to hire a second-year law student for placement under the Rural Education & Access to Lawyers (REAL) Student Program in 2021.
The program has always encouraged firm or practitioner contributions in the past, and priority may be given to firms that have secured funding. In this application, each practitioner/firm must provide information detailing their steps to secure a funding partner or a commitment to self-match the funding that is received through REAL. If you are unable to secure additional funding and are not in the position to self-fund, please provide details to the Advisory Committee explaining your position.
This form confirms your interest in the program and ensures you receive updates on the program throughout the recruitment phase. However, it does not guarantee your eligibility or approval for funding, which will be determined by the REAL Advisory Committee. Applications close on Friday, March 12, 2021.
