Pegasus Scholarships

The Pegasus Scholarship Trust is an exchange program, wherein young American Inn of Court members visit London for six weeks to learn about the English legal system and young English barristers visit the United States for six weeks to learn about the American legal system.

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.

Learn more and apply by January 16, 2024.

English Barristers in the United States

English barristers spend six weeks in the United States and are placed with a host American Inn of Court that plans the scholars' educational activities. The goal is to provide a broad but thorough exposure to the American legal system. The lodging expenses, as well as a modest stipend are paid by the Pegasus Scholarship Trust.
