Pace Law School in White Plains, New York has announced scholarship opportunities for students enrolling in its LL.M. in Environmental Law for the academic year beginning in Fall 2015.
There is no fixed number of scholarships available. Although the value of awarded scholarships generally varies between 10 and 30 percent of program tuition, the Graduate Admissions Committee "has the discretion to approve larger amounts for highly qualified candidates," according to the law school.
Selection criteria focus primarily on a candidate’s academic and/or professional background, commitment to environmental law, and documented need. Applicants must have completed an LL.B. or equivalent law degree by the time of enrollment. Non-native English speakers are expected to have a TOEFL score of at least 90, an IELTS score of at least 6.5, or to complete a language course at the Pace University English Language Institute.
For preferential consideration, applications should be received by February 28.
Students in Pace’s LL.M. in Environmental Law program may choose from three optional specializations: Climate and Energy Law, Land Use and Sustainable Development Law, or Global Environmental Law.
