Our Global Scholarships program supports outstanding law students in developing countries reach their potential and contribute to the rule of law in their communities.
Each year we sponsor up to 50 students, called Fellows, based throughout Africa, South and West Asia, the South Pacific, and Latin America. Currently we have 50 Fellows from 14 countries.
Over their bespoke two-year program, students have their full tuition paid and receive mentoring, internships, training and career preparation designed to develop their skills, confidence and networks. After finishing, students join our global alumni program.
The initiative's success depends on collaboration with universities and other educational centers, our clients, governments and, of course, our people. It is not a recruitment tool: our goal is to support students in developing their careers in whatever direction they choose.
