is age important ???

and the one more question that worries me : what about the age for getting a scholarship in LLM?? is it considered??
My friend who graduated from the same university says that be the time i have got my LLB (i will be 21 by then) no one will accept me to the university to get LLM with a grant !!!
Even with work experience and plenty of articles published in the sphere I require!
What's the average and possible age to be admitted to some kind of a programme to study in the UK based on scholarships ???????
Thank you very much !!!

If you have SEVERAL refereed articles published by 21 years of age I think law schools will JUMP at you. Some Phd's don;t have "several" refereed articles.

Go for it I tell you!

Good luck.

age is "not" a consideration when it comes to handing out scholarships, at least not in the two jurisdictions I am familiar with: the UK and the US. scholarships are usually awarded based upon one of the following: minority status, financial need, or merit. the better law schools usually attract people a fair bid older than 21 to their LLM programs, since they place a premium on already qualified lawyers with at least a few years of work experience. i wouldn't worry about age when you are 31, let alone 21!

I don't think it's important.... you should consider that in many other countries students get their degree when they're definitly older then 21!
Ex. I'm Italian, and here you start univ. when you're 19... then you'll have to spend 5 years before you degree. In the most optimistic way, I'll apply my LL.M at 24!!

There are actually quite a few scholarships for Cambridge and also quite a few people who get them. First, if you are from a former or current commonwealth country, then you have the Chevening Scholarships. Australia has the Camrbridge Australian Trust Scholarships, there are the Gates Scholarships, which normally go to at least one LLM student and then you have numerous internal Cambridge Trust Scholarships. Even the Colleges have their own individual Scholarships. The main ones that give lots of money to law students are Gonville and Caius (The WM Tapp Studentship) and Sidney Sussex. I know there are plenty of others there as well. Most Colleges also have non subject specific scholarships and some or most have scholarships based on where you are from (normally donated by a person from the specific country). I of course only found out about all of this AFTER all the applications and admissions stuff. ARGH. Hindsight is 20/20. Also, please be sensible and dont start sending applications yet. If you are currently 19 then I would imagine you are only in 2nd year and if you will be 21 when finished that means another 2 years to go. You can only apply for admission in the year following application, as in apply Oct 2006 for admission Oct 2007. There's no harm in looking at the application however, and seeing how you might answer some of the questions or even evaluating yourself and trying to improve on areas that you are weak on in the time between now and when you do apply.
Also, whoever told you that age was a factor for grants or scholarships was a complete twit. In the future I would strongly advise ignoring all supposedly "helpful" comments from this person about your future. As was pointed out previously by underemployedlawyer, the criteria is merit or need or special conditions attached to the scholarship (never age, always either subject or country of origin).
