The Centre for Commercial Law Studies at Queen Mary University London is pleased to offer one full tuition fee scholarship for the 2017 intake for students (home / international) that wish to follow an LLM in Comparative and International Dispute Resolution.
The QMUL LLM in Comparative and International Dispute Resolution aims to inspire a new generation of lawyers to rethink traditional approaches to conflict and conflict resolution, and is widely considered one of the leading academic courses in international dispute resolution.
The International Arbitration Charity Ball (IACB) is a charity organisation that, since 2010, has been raising money for Save the Children to provide for life-saving food, shelter and medicines, but also to set up safe spaces for vulnerable children around the world to receive education.
From 2016, the Centre for Commercial Law Studies at QMUL and IACB have collaborated to provide a scholarship for a talented student with modest means to study for an LLM in International Dispute Resolution.
As well as meeting the high academic standards of the course, candidates for the scholarship must meet the scholarship's objective of furthering access to education in international arbitration for students who demonstrate exceptional promise but modest means.
