The City Law School Dean’s Scholarship for Academic Excellence

The City Law School is firmly committed to a generous programme of scholarships awarded on the basis of academic excellence. While the primary consideration for the award of a scholarship is academic excellence, The City Law School's Scholarships Committee looks carefully at the full range of qualities possessed by each individual closely considers the broader context in which the academic excellence has been achieved. We also believe that it is important to value the potential of applicants to make a positive contribution to the School, the legal professions, and the community when we evaluate applications.
