TORMEYS LAW SCHOLARSHIP 2019

Tormeys Solicitors provides an annual Scholarship to Leaving Certificate students from
the Athlone, Moate, Ferbane, Ballymahon, Roscommon, Ballinasloe and Tullamore
school areas. This fund is awarded to students that attain the highest leaving certificate
points and who have chosen to pursue a legal course at a third level institution in 2019.

This is the 27th presentation of the Scholarship, and whilst there are now a number of
scholarships presented by corporate bodies within the Athlone area, Tormeys Solicitors was
the first to embrace this incentive to encourage young adults to study Law.

The Scholarship Fund in total is valued at over €2,500 with €1,200 for 1 st place, €600 for 2 nd
place and €300 for 3 rd place. It is payable for one year to students attending a faculty of Law in
any University or Institute of Technology, in the Republic of Ireland. To recognise the school’s
contribution, Tormeys donate the sum of €500 to the winning school.

In 2000 to commemorate the Millennium, Tormeys introduced the presentation of a
perpetual trophy to the school with the highest cumulative points for law students within
that year. The winner of the 2019 school prize is Our Lady’s Bower, Athlone.
