A former Indian student at the University of Cambridge has set up a scholarship in the Faculty of Law for Indian lawyers to complete the LLM degree at the prestigious university.

The scholarship, set up by New Delhi-based lawyer Pratibha M Singh, is intended particularly for Indian students seeking to specialise in Intellectual Property Law, a university press release said.

Singh undertook a Master of Law degree at Cambridge in 1992 on a scholarship from the Cambridge Commonwealth Trust, after completing Bachelor of Law degree from Bangalore University.

Singh said: "This scholarship is the first step to make a contribution to the legal profession and give back what I got when I studied in Cambridge University. I hope meritorious Indian students avail this to do an LLM with focus on IPR laws and return to India. The purpose is to encourage young bright lawyers to join litigation practice."

The university said that Indian applicants for the scholarship should be talented students currently residing in India, in need of financial assistance to study at Cambridge, and intending to pursue a legal career in India after graduation.

The application deadline is 15 November 2013, for study in 2014-15.
