Lee Wood is in the third year of a LLB (Hons) Law degree and has been awarded the Sir Robert Micklethwait Memorial Prize by the Middle Temple in London.
The 35-year-old will use the scholarship to fund his Bar Vocational Course (BVC) studies at the College of Law in Birmingham.
He has also been awarded a Blackstone Entrance Exhibition award for £180. Lee plans to become a specialist in either Criminal or Family Law.
Lee, from Wednesfield, Wolverhampton, said: "The School of Legal Studies has provided not only education, but dedication, inspiration and encouragement, for which I shall always be grateful."
Stuart Williams, Associate Dean, said: "Lee's success in achieving two awards for study at the Bar is testament to his hard work and dedication and gives the staff in SLS a real sense of pride. We wish him all the best in his future career."
Around 300 candidates are interviewed for the scholarship over three days. They face five panels each consisting of three barristers.
