The City Law School has teamed up with US firm Crowell & Moring, which will see one of its LLM students win a scholarship and take up an internship with the firm.
As part of the new scheme, which is open to students studying competition courses as part of the school’s International Commercial Law LLM, the intern will spend three months with the firm in London and receive a £5,000 scholarship.
Professor Alan Riley, director of the LLM, said: “This will enable our students to blend the knowledge they develop on our International Commercial Law programme with top-flight practical experience.”
The school has also renewed its international commercial law internship with Sidley Austin for the fifth year running, which will see one student spend three months in the US giant’s Brussels office next summer.
The position is open to all students on the international commercial law LLM course and the firm will pay a scholarship worth 5,000 Euros to the successful candidate.
Meanwhile, City Law School has announced it will be continuing its international shipping law internship with maritime specialists Thomas Cooper for a fifth year running.
The news comes after the school teamed up with K&L Gates to provide one of its LLM students with an international energy litigation internship in Paris (see story).
