Miami Law has $15,000 LLM scholarships for Colombian students

Miami Law has teamed up with some of the best law schools and associations in Colombia to offer $15,000 scholarships towards LLM tuition fees for its LLM programs that accept foreign trained lawyers. This great funding opportunity is available to up to four outstanding law graduates from each school or four outstanding members of each organisation.

Miami Law currently has agreements with seven Colombian institutions, including: Universidad del Rosario, Santa Fe de Bogotá, Colombia; Universidad ICESI, Cali, Colombia; Pontificia Universidad Javeriana, Cali, Colombia; Universidad de San Buenaventura, Cali, Colombia; Universidad EAFIT, Medellín, Colombia; Acofade Colombian Association of Law Schools and Universidad Externado de Colombia, Bogotá, Colombia.

Speaking about these partnerships, Miami Law’s LLM/JD Academic Director, Yasmina Assis, says, “These agreements are with the best law schools in Colombia and benefit our law school because they attract competitive Colombian attorneys to join our student body and to pursue one of our LLM programs.”

These partnerships have great benefits for both Miami Law and for the Colombian attorneys, and Assis explains, “The attorneys who have the opportunity to come to UM will learn about the United States and become familiar with the American legal system. They will go back to work for the best law firms, corporations or the government in Colombia.”

To date, four students have benefited from these LLM scholarships. Applicants are nominated by the law schools and associations, then Miami Law evaluates them on the basis of their skills and achievements. For further Information contact Yasmina Assis at yassis@law.miami.edu.
