The University of Liverpool in the UK is inviting applications for the Hodgson Law Scholarship for international students in the 2019/20 session.
The Hodgson Law Scholarship, which has been made possible through the generous benefaction of Elizabeth Hodgson, widow of the Liverpool Solicitor Joseph Hodgson, who expressed a wish to advance the education and training of lawyers who might work for the benefit of Merseyside. The Trustees wish Hodgson Law Scholars to benefit from education in Liverpool with a view to encouraging the intellectual growth of promising law students and the nurturing of close links with the City of Liverpool and the Liverpool City Region.
These Scholarships have been initiated after the death of Elizabeth Hodgson pursuant to the Hodgson Will Trust. The Hodgson Trustees have resolved to set up a scheme of Hodgson Law Scholars to be selected through a Selection Committee.

Scholars will attend the Liverpool Law School at the University of Liverpool or the School of Law at Liverpool John Moores University and pursue a postgraduate degree in law.
Accordingly, applications are sought from talented law students who wish to study full-time at the University of Liverpool or Liverpool John Moores University for a post-graduate degree in law. Applicants may be of any age but the applicants’ undergraduate qualifications must provide a sufficient basis for their further study in the proposed field.
