City Law School launches LLM scholarship

The City Law School has rolled out new scholarships for aspiring lawyers wishing to study its LLM Masters programmes.

The awards are set to cover tuition fees for four lucky law students, offering more than £12,000 each.

LLM programme director Professor Alan Riley said: “They will help ensure greater diversity and access to our programmes as well as giving the winning students a real boost to their legal careers.”

The scholarships are described as competitive, with eligible students needing to achieve at least an upper second class degree or equivalent and an IETLS English Language score of 7.0.

The would-be lawyers are also required to submit a 2,000-word essay entitled – ‘How will the economic crisis impact market regulation?’

The news arrives following the announcement that the cap on tuition fees is to be lifted in 2012, with a host of universities stating they plan to charge the top fee of £9,000 per year.
