Scholarships and Prizes 2008:
Eldon Law Scholarship 2009
The Board of the Faculty of Law announces that the Eldon Law Scholarship, value not less than £ 6,750 per annum, is awarded annually to be held for up to two years.
Candidates must be members of the University of Oxford who:
(a) have passed their examination in any Second Public Examination, or for the Degree of Bachelor of Civil Law or for the Degree of Magister Juris; and
(b) have either been placed in the First Class or been awarded a distinction in one or other of these examinations or in Honour Moderations (N.B. Law is not an Honour Moderations subject) or have gained one of the Chancellor's Prizes; and
(c) intend to follow the profession of the Law; and
(d) have applied for one of the scholarships either before, or within two years next following, the date of their call to the Bar.
Candidates will be required to sign a declaration that they intend to practise at the Bar in the United Kingdom.
Until they have been called to the Bar, Scholars must produce proof that they have regularly kept their terms, unless prevented by illness, at one of the Inns of Court.
In general the policy of the awarding committee is to give preference to a candidate who has completed his or her Oxford education, and will, at the date of the interview, be undertaking the vocational stage of training prior to entry into pupillage.
Applications, accompanied by a curriculum vitae, must be sent to the Secretary to the Eldon Committee (on a form obtainable from him—e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org), Law Faculty Office, St Cross Building, St Cross Road, Oxford OX1 3UL, not later than Friday, 24 October 2008, in a sealed envelope marked 'Eldon Scholarship Application'.
