Melbourne Law School Offers New Scholarship For LL.M. & JD Students From India

The scholarship will cover the tuition fees for an international student from India

Melbourne Law School has announced a new scholarship for international students from India who have been accepted onto the school's LL.M. or JD program.

The Alex Chernov Scholarship will be awarded for the first time in 2017 for students commencing in 2018.

The scholarship will cover the tuition fees for the three-year Juris Doctor program or the one-year LL.M. program.

The scholarship is named after Hon Alex Chernov AC QC, a Melbourne Law School alumnus who is a former governor of the Australian state Victoria, where Melbourne is the capital.

He was previously a Judge of the Court of Appeal of the Supreme Court of Victoria and Chancellor of the University of Melbourne, and founded the Australia India Institute.

The scholarship recipient will be mentored by Chernov.

The aim of the scholarship is to promote business connections between Australia and India.

Students offered a place on either of these programs will automatically be considered for the scholarship.

For more information, see the school's website.
