In 2017 we launched our Global Scholarships which extends the work of our Break into Law programme.
Each year we will award scholarships to top law students from the world's least developed countries. These students receive funding, mentoring and placements across our global practice over a two-year period before joining our alumni programme.
This is not a recruitment programme: our aim is to support students to develop and build careers in their home countries, whether in law, business or government. It is part of our commitment to developing a strong global rule of law as well as enabling underrepresented groups to enter the legal profession.
Our first winners from Afghanistan, Ethiopia, Senegal, Uganda and Zambia share our ambition to develop the legal infrastructure in their countries. Most already volunteer with human rights organizations: they are already changing their communities.
Our next recruitment round will be promoted on our website and via our university partners.
