In the framework of their partnership, CEIPI of the University of Strasbourg and the Law School of the Vanderbilt University (Nashville, Tennessee) announce the creation of a special scholarship meant for a CEIPI student for obtaining an LLM in the USA. This scholarship of 30 000 $ comes with a position (remunerated according to the application rates) of research assistant on intellectual property(the exam period won’t be paid) under the supervision of Prof. Daniel Gervais. This scholarship is available for the academic year 2018-2019 (beginning of the courses in August 2018). A similar scholarship will be provided each year.
