Free legal advice for enterprising students
SRUC's Dr Carol Langston with Stuart Moy, Ruth McCallister and Adrian Bell from Morton Fraser
Students at Scotland’s Rural College (SRUC) will be offered free legal support to progress business ideas as part of a new partnership with one of Scotland’s largest independent law firms.
The partnership between Morton Fraser and SRUC’s Enterprise Academy - which was set up to help students develop enterprising mindsets - will also include presentations on relevant legal topics.
In addition, the law firm will become one of the sponsors of the SRUC Enterprise Challenge – a competition which offers students from any programme the opportunity to develop their ideas, win prizes and upskill.
Dr Carol Langston, SRUC Enterprise Academy Director, said: “We are delighted to announce this important partnership which brings considerable benefits to the Enterprise Academy and SRUC’s students.
“Morton Fraser is a highly respected and experienced law firm which is at the forefront of industry and is keen to collaborate with us as we build an institution-wide enterprise culture for all SRUC students.”
Morton Fraser Chief Executive Chris Harte said: "Given our long-standing relationship with SRUC, we are delighted to have the opportunity to work with the Enterprise Academy to help develop the business skills of the next generation and enable our rural communities to grow.
“We see this as an agile and evolving partnership to support SRUC with the development of the Enterprise Academy and would be pleased to offer other support as the needs of the participants evolve."
