27 February 2017: Scholarship for obtaining an LLM at Vanderbilt University, USA (academic year 2017/2018)


In the framework of their new 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 USA. This scholarship of 30 000 $ is going along 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 academic year 2017-2018 (beginning of the courses in August 2017). A similar scholarship will be provided each year.

The Law School of the Vanderbilt University is one of the highest ranked in the United States, especially for its programmes on intellectual property, business law, international law and social justice.

The LLM degree of Vanderbilt allows students to take the Bar exams, especially the New York’s one. About sixty students from Europe, Latin America, Asia and Africa are accepted into the LLM programme each year. The LLM programme is fully integrated into the JD (Juris Doctor degree or Doctor of Law degree) programme and enables students to register to the same courses. An intensive and optional legal English course is also provided in July.

The Vanderbilt University, located in Nashville (Tennessee) known as the “Music City U.S.A”, is also one of the main Biomedical Research Center in the United States. The city is also an ideal location to visit the Eastern, Central and Southern Regions of the United States. The Law School provides assistance to all new students regarding accommodation and administrative tasks.

The scholarship recipient will be chosen jointly by CEIPI and Vanderbilt.
