Scholarships - top law schools to target?


Hi, I'm a French attorney strongly considering doing an LLM starting next year. I would like to do the program at a law school (outside of France) that has a very good reputation and is well known.

However, I do not have a lot of financial support and I would need some kind of scholarship funding or other kind of help.

With this fact in mind I do not imagine that I would be able to attend a school like Harvard considering how much it costs and the competition to get in.

However, I am curious about other 'top' law schools that maybe offer a bit of support for international students. I would be very interested in schools in the USA but also open to law schools in the UK or maybe Singapore.

Any guidance would be much appreciated.

*Most* law schools will offer some kind of support in terms of scholarships, fellowships, grants, etc. And at least for many US schools, and probably schools elsewhere, you are usually automatically considered for any funding on offer.

Your initial instincts are good: the more competitive a school is, the less chance there will be for scholarships, and the scholarships may in fact be lower than what you might find at less competitive schools.

A good approach is to apply for a range of schools, some that are more competitive and maybe one our two 'safety' schools, where your qualifications are above average. It's sometimes the case that the safety schools will probably be willing to offer you more funding to beef up their classes.

In some cases other scholarships might be available to you depending on your background, or where you're from. Finding these will take a bit of research but sometimes the law schools will help connect you with the proper resources.
