Future energy lawyers offered full scholarship

Firm February 11, 2016

Second consecutive year of post-graduate scholarships for the Energy & Natural Resources Law Programme at the Centre for Commercial Law Studies, Queen Mary University of London.

Norton Rose Fulbright LLP and the Centre for Commercial Law Studies (CCLS) are pleased to offer two full tuition fee scholarships to students on the LLM in Energy and Natural Resources Law Programme at Queen Mary University of London (QMUL), for the second consecutive year.

The scholarship opened in 2015, following the launch of the Energy and Natural Resources Law Institute, provides funding for the programme as well as providing each successful student with an internship opportunity in a Norton Rose Fulbright office. The institute, which provides a focus for the development of energy and natural resources law, allows each student to develop a broader understanding of the energy sector.

Neil Q. Miller, head of the energy disputes practice of Norton Rose Fulbright LLP, and who sits on the working group committee for the Energy and Natural Resources Law Programme at QMUL, commented:

“We are delighted to continue to strengthen our relationship with CCLS and QMUL. Our commitment to the energy industry continues to grow and we remain dedicated to providing the chosen students with invaluable skills to become successful energy lawyers through attendance on the LLM and through our internships. QMUL has an excellent reputation, and we are pleased to be able to sponsor this scholarship programme.”

Norah Gallagher, Academic Director of the new Energy and Natural Resources Law Institute at CCLS said: “This scholarship is about building networks and connections within a globally prestigious law firm that is very active in the energy sector. The message to those considering the LLM is that while this opportunity is highly competitive, it is one not to be missed.”
