This award and the fellowship opportunity for 2021 is currently being deferred due to travel restrictions. An update will be posted of when this opportunity will be available.

The aim of the internship is to provide realistic, high-level and varied legal work experience through a supervised internship. Whilst the internship itself is unpaid, the selected recipient will be provided with a scholarship valued at £8,000.
