Master of Laws (LLM) Programme

Student Prizes

UCL Laws awards prizes and scholarships to students who have achieved top marks in their examinations or who have demonstrated outstanding academic achievement. It does this through the generous support of a wide range of sponsors, including legal firms, Laws alumni and individual benefactors who maintain strong links with the Faculty and who encourage our students to strive for excellence. Our prize winners are very special indeed. To be awarded a Faculty prize or scholarship is to be given significant recognition as truly outstanding amongst your peers.

*Please note that not all prizes are awarded annually.
