Kirkland & Ellis International LLP, and LSE Law, are delighted to announce the establishment of the Kirkland & Ellis Scholarship, as part of their commitment to widening participation in the legal profession.

Over three years, the scholarships will be worth up to £27,000 in all to selected undergraduate law students at the LSE. Kirkland & Ellis is a 2,000-attorney law firm representing global clients in offices around the world; in Beijing, Boston, Chicago, Hong Kong, Houston, London, Los Angeles, Munich, New York, Palo Alto, San Francisco, Shanghai and Washington, D.C. Their London office has been the hub of European operations since 1994. Here, over 200 lawyers offer detailed expertise to a wide range of UK and international clients. Kirkland & Ellis are committed to assist aspiring solicitors to achieve their potential, and are excited to partner with LSE Law to offer this scholarship. The Department intends to appoint one Kirkland & Ellis scholar each year, and has invited those commencing their second year of undergraduate study in law to apply to become the first Kirkland & Ellis scholar.
