Ken Scott Bursary Awarded to University of Dundee law students

Three University of Dundee law students have been awarded funding as a result of a memorial bursary set up by legal firm Blackadders LLP in conjunction with the university.

Kimberley Dewar, Waleen Pirzada and Aime Paterson have each received £250 from the Ken Scott Bursary which provides support based on financial needs.

The recipients were recognised for their tenacity and passion in achieving their legal career ambitions,with each having to juggle personal and work commitments on top of their studies.

Administered by Blackadders, the bursary was set up in 2013 following the death of colleague and mentor Ken Scott. Ken, who lived in Carnoustie, was born in 1961 and qualified with LLB (Hons) and DipLP in 1984 from the University of Dundee before being admitted as a solicitor in Scotland in 1985. Following training at Thornton Dickie & Brand, he became a solicitor at North East Fife District Council before moving to Edinburgh to join the Bank of Scotland’s legal team.

In 1990, he went on to become an associate with Pagan Osborne Grace & Calders then in 1994, he joined Blackadders where he spent 19 years as an associate, working in the commercial property unit. He also spent many years as course organiser and tutor on the company and commercial course of the diploma in legal practice at the University of Dundee.
