International Bar Association and College of Law Announce LL.M Scholarships

Scholarships for qualified lawyers and law graduates wishing to boost their knowledge of global legal practice by studying for a Masters of Law LL.M degree have been announced.

For the second year the International Bar Association (IBA) and The College of Law are offering four £2,500 awards towards the fees for their full-time LL.M in International Legal Practice, which runs at the College’s London Moorgate and Manchester centres from September 2013.

This follows the College’s recent announcement of scholarships and awards for the 2013 Graduate Diploma in Law, LL.M Legal Practice Course and Bar Professional Training Course postgraduate programmes, as well as for its undergraduate LL.B law degree.

To apply students must have accepted a place on the September 2013 full-time London or Manchester LL.M programme by July 19, 2013.

They need to submit an essay, short video or other form of digital presentation also by July 19 on the following question: ‘In Shakespeare’s Henry VI (part two) Dick the Butcher demands: “the first thing we do, let’s kill all the lawyers”. Consider whether this is the public’s attitude of lawyers today and whether that perception is likely to change over the next ten years?’

The LL.M in International Legal Practice was launched by the College and IBA in 2007 and was designed with contributions from leading global law firms, including Allen & Overy, DLA Piper and Baker & McKenzie.

It provides an internationally recognised practice-focused professional qualification designed to build corporate and cross-border legal knowledge and can be studied either part-time online with one-to- one tutor supervision or full-time in London and Manchester. Since the LL.M’s launch in 2007 lawyers from nearly 35 jurisdictions have registered for a total of around 1,700 LL.M modules.

Tim Hughes, Deputy Executive Director of the IBA, said: “The practical advantages of this LL.M, 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 once again be able to broaden access to it through offering these scholarships.”

The IBA is the world’s leading organisation of international legal practitioners, bar associations and law societies while The College of Law, which has eight centres across the UK, is Europe’s largest provider

of legal professional education. In November the College announced that it had been granted university title and will be rebranding as The University of Law from early 2013.

Robert Dudley, Business Development Director at The College of Law, said: “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 LL.M scholarship scheme aims to widen access to a world-class qualification designed to boost students’ future legal careers.”

Entries will be judged by a panel comprising College of Law and external legal professionals who will assess students’ ability to demonstrate a range of professional skills required by modern law firms such as communication, creative and analytical thinking, commercial awareness and knowledge of the subject matter.
