Governor (Finance) – The Legal Education Foundation

Location: London+

Date Posted: 18/01/2019

Closing Date: 15/02/2019

The Legal Education Foundation, a Royal Charter charitable foundation was created in late 2012 with the monies received from the sale of the education and training business of The College of Law. The proceeds of the sale, £200 million, have been invested with the aim of providing an annual amount of 3.5% of the Fund Capital to advance the charitable Object of the Foundation which is “to promote the advancement of legal education and the study of law in all its branches”.

The Object is currently delivered by supporting public and civic legal education and developing a broad range of schemes aimed at promoting access to justice through legal education and an understanding of the law. There is no geographic limit to the Foundation’s activities although currently the Governors restrict its grants programme to the United Kingdom.

Since 2013, The Legal Education Foundation has awarded more than 390 grants totalling £22 million to organisations across the UK.
