Stephen Whiteland Memorial Scholarship

The Scholarship has been created to honour Stephen Whiteland who was an outstanding staff member, colleague, and friend to those at AWS Legal.

In 2021, the AWS Legal team lost a beloved staff member, colleague and friend, Stephen Whiteland. To honour his memory a scholarship was started in his name. Stephen loved helping young solicitors and so the Stephen Whiteland Memorial Scholarship was born.
