Fees

Tuition fees cover all elements of your tuition, registration and examination. If applicable, any additional research expenses will be specified on your formal offer of admission. Full details of the tuition fees for each academic year can be found under the Fee schedule pages of the UCL Current Students website.

Tuition fees for subsequent years are subject to increase. You should make provision for such increases and this is implicit in accepting the offer of a place at UCL.

You must pay at least a third of your tuition fee before or at enrolment to be fully enrolled, or provide a letter of sponsorship indicating who should be invoiced for your fee.

Leonard Sainer Scholarship 

Leonard Sainer was a law graduate of UCL (1929 – 1932) and went on to become a prominent City solicitor, the director of a number of public companies and a generous philanthropist. He passed away in 1991.

The Foundation, which was set up in his memory (and which is administered by Dechert LLP), funds two scholarships each year at UCL to be awarded to final year law students (completing the LLB or LLM) or students who graduated (with an LLB or LLM) in the previous year (2020). The selected students must intend to practise law in England and Wales on a permanent basis – preferably one as a Solicitor, the other as a Barrister. Each scholarship will be used towards the cost of full-time courses leading to final professional examinations, LPC or BPTC.

To be eligible for this scholarship, you should be able to demonstrate that you meet the following criteria:

  • Financial need or other instances of hardship;

  • A commitment to practise away from the large City and regional law firms and Commercial and Chancery chambers (which usually offer financial support) and instead to focus on social welfare law areas including family, criminal, immigration, housing law, etc.;

  • The likelihood of achieving at least a 2:1 degree in the LLB examinations or a Merit in the LLM examinations;

  • Right to work in the UK

For all information, please see the application form below:

 

Deadline

The deadline to apply for the scholarship is 4:00pm Friday 05 February 2021.

All applications are to be emailed to b.bonney@ucl.ac.uk and to (for LLM students) llm-admissions@ucl.ac.uk; OR (for LLB students) to ug-law@ucl.ac.uk ensuring that ‘LEONARD SAINER SCHOLARSHIP APPLICATION’ is included in the subject line of your email.
