Queen Mary University of London has launched a scholarship and internship programme with Norton Rose Fulbright.
The programme is eligible for those applying for the university’s LLM in Energy and Natural Resources Law. The two applicants who are successful will have their tuition fees – amounting to £12,600 for UK and EU students or £18,000 for non-EU students – paid in full. They will also get two weeks of work experience with Norton Rose Fulbright, which has a significant energy practice.
The closing date for applications is 30 April.
Norton Rose Fulbright partner Neil Miller said: “We are delighted to be involved in a programme and initiative that provides students with invaluable skills which will enable them to build future careers in the energy law sector. QMUL has an excellent reputation and we are very pleased to be able to work with the law school at the university, in partnership with the Centre for Commercial Law Studies, to offer students this exciting opportunity.”
The news is Queen Mary’s third tie-up with a law firm in quick succession. In January it partnered with Reed Smith to launch a four-year degree in which law undergraduates will work for one year at the American firm’s London office.
Then in February, it announced a partnership with Mishcon de Reya in which its students will offer free advice to revenge porn victims under the supervision of the firm’s reputation management lawyers.
