In launching the scheme Lord Hope said:

I offer my warmest congratulations to the Law School on its decision to launch these scholarships.  A post-graduate qualification can offer real benefits to those seeking to develop a career in law.  Attracting the best students to participate in the programmes that are on offer here is an important part of the process. So I very much welcome the opportunity that they will now have to compete for one of these awards, to which I am happy to give my name as an encouragement to develop their knowledge and understanding of their chosen subject.
