Legal Studies Scholarships

Graduate Legal Studies Scholarships

At Baker & McKenzie, we offer world-class support to guide development for every role and experience level. Graduate Legal Studies Scholarships are part of this commitment. Each year we provide a number of scholarships to our associates for full-time graduate legal study outside their home jurisdictions, ideally in a college or university near one of our offices.

These prestigious awards are open to individuals who have been with the Firm for at least two years and the program of study must contemplate the completion of a graduate law degree (LLM, MCL, or similar degree). Each Scholarship is awarded for a minimum of 12 months of study.

Over the past 10 years, 14 awards have been made to European associates. The winners attended courses at universities such as Columbia, Harvard, University of California, University of Chicago, NYU, University College London and the University of Cambridge.

What Our Associates Say about the Scholarships

"One of the stories I always tell my colleagues is that on the inauguration speech in Georgetown the Dean was explaining that, in that year's LL.M, we had X number of Asian attorneys, X number of European attorneys, X number of American attorneys, X number of Spanish speaking attorneys, X number of French, English and Chinese speaking attorneys and, finally, X number of Baker & McKenzie's attorneys. We were the only law firm mentioned in the speech, and this helped me realize what a truly international firm we are and how Baker & McKenzie attorneys are known and recognized all over the world."

"I wish to express my appreciation to the Firm for the award of a Graduate Legal Studies Scholarship. As I indicated above, my time at NYU has been the most significant educational experience in my life. This would not have been possible – or would have at least been very difficult – without the financial support of the Firm."

"I took a program which offered me the opportunity to study both business law and management techniques. The real value of such a program was in its integrated approach. The experience was intense, and we learned to appreciate the strategic, legal and financial dimensions of business issues. This perspective is valuable for anyone with an interest in business or business law with direct advantages for a lawyer with business standpoint and indirect benefits for the firm. The intensive 12-month program led me to work closely with business people and understand the business rationale behind transactions and as a consequence, it will certainly enhance my legal advices."

"The LLM met all my expectations and even surprised me in the best ways possible. I feel as though I have lived many years in one. It has definitely been a lifetime experience and I really appreciate that Baker & McKenzie provided me with this opportunity. If I could not express in these few paragraphs how amazing the whole LLM experience has been, I should just say: it is really worth it!"
