Supporting the
Future

Jacobs Florentine supports the development of our local youth in the legal profession and each year awards a Scholarship Grant to a Year 13 recipient or recipients to assist in their future legal studies.

The Jacobs Florentine Trust Scholarship was established by the late Mr Larry Florentine in 2004 to provide future law students from the Manawatu with financial assistance, mentoring and referrals for future job applications.

There have been 29 recipients of the Trust since its inception many of whom have gone on to undertake distinguished legal careers. Our independent Trustee is Hugh Drake, Head of Geography at Palmerston North Boys High.

If clients or associates are aware of a Year 13 student who is wanting to study law we encourage you to make contact with the firm to see whether they are eligible for the assistance of the Trust
