American Attorneys in the United Kingdom
The work of a Pegasus scholar is challenging, but rewarding. While details of the program differ each year, the scholarship is designed to provide an intensive, six-week introduction to the English legal system. Pegasus scholars spend the majority of their time in barristers’ chambers as well as observing trials or arguments in action. Members of the American Inns of Court admitted to the bar for at least two years but not more than seven years are encouraged to apply. Applications for the 2021 scholarships are due January 4, 2021.
