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

American Attorneys in the United Kingdom

The scholarship is designed to provide an intensive six-week introduction to the English legal system. Pegasus Scholars meet judges and barristers, observe trial preparation, observe argument and court proceedings, learn about the relationship between barristers and solicitors, learn how barristers’ chambers operate, and gain an understanding of the English legal education system. The scholars are also introduced to the four English Inns of Court.

Learn more and apply by February 15, 2024.

English Barristers in the United States

English barristers spend six weeks in the United States, during which they are hosted by one or more American Inns of Court that plan educational activities for the scholars. The goal is to provide a broad but thorough exposure to the American legal system.
