Chapman University's Fowler Law School has announced a new full-tuition LL.M. scholarship that commemorates the 70th anniversary of the Nuremberg Trials.
The new funding will be made available to one lawyer or law student with a degree from a law school in a country which was in the European theater of World War II.
The recipient of the scholarship will undertake research on the legacy of the Nuremberg Trials in the development of international criminal law. The fellow will have access to Chapman's related resources, including the Rodgers Center for Holocaust Education and Samueli Holocaust Memorial Library.
Held between November 1945 and October 1946, the Nuremberg Trials were a series of military tribunals that prosecuted the leadership of Nazi Germany for the country's role in World War II.
In addition to covering the full cost of the tuition for Chapman's LL.M. program, the new fellowship will also include a $10,000 stipend, plus opportunities to attain additional funding like travel grants and research stipends.
The fellowship would begin either in January 2016 or August 2015, depending on the candidate’s availability. It would be for 12 months and cannot be renewed.
To apply for the fellowship, interested candidates contact [email protected] /* */.
