College of Law and International Bar Association launch LLM scholarships

The College of Law and the International Bar Association (IBA) are launching four LLM scholarships worth £2,500 each. These four awards are for people studying the College of Law’s full-time LLM in International Legal Practice, which will be run from the College of Law’s Moorgate centre from September 2012.

To apply for one of these LLM scholarships, students must have accepted a place on the September 2012 full-time London LLM programme by Friday 20th July 2012. They also need to submit an essay, short video or other form of digital presentation on the subject ‘Why the world needs lawyers’ by the same date of Friday 20th July.

The LLM in International Legal Practice was launched by the College of Law and IBA in 2007, and was originally designed with contributions from leading global law firms, including Allen & Overy, DLA Piper and Baker & McKenzie.
Deputy Executive Director of the IBA, Tim Hughes, says, “The practical advantages of this LLM, in being tutored on how to conduct real cross-border transactions, will broaden the skills of any aspiring young lawyer, and we are delighted to be able to broaden access to it through offering these scholarships.”

Business Development Director at The College of Law, Robert Dudley, says “Commercial legal practice in the modern world of law is becoming more and more globalised. The skill set required for a career in the international legal market has increased over the past decade with specialist skills and global business insight now setting lawyers apart. This new LL.M scholarship scheme will widen access to a world-class qualification designed to boost students’ future legal careers.”
