TRACE Studentship in Law

Student reading in the Library

King’s College and TRACE International offer a TRACE studentship in Law. Funding is available for an LLM course of study in the academic year 2017/18.

Candidates for the studentship should demonstrate an established interest in criminal law and anti-corruption efforts. The studentship fully funds students from developing countries to pursue an LLM focused on advancing commercial transparency and raising anti-bribery compliance standards. Further information about TRACE and the studentship.

It is expected the TRACE Scholar will enroll in relevant courses focused on criminal law, international law, rule of law, governance and economic development, and write his or her LLM thesis on a subject related to criminal law and anticorruption, such as international aspects.

The studentship award will cover the University composition fee and maintainance costs, and may be able to assist with application and visa expenses. In addition, the TRACE Scholar may have the opportunity to interact with TRACE member companies in the London area while studying at Cambridge.

At the conclusion of the LLM, the TRACE Scholar will be offered a fully paid internship (6 – 10 weeks) at TRACE headquarters in Annapolis, Maryland.

The TRACE studentship at King’s is funded through the TRACE Scholar Programme. The selected candidate will be expected to document his or her study for the programme, and to report on progress and achievement as an alumnus/a of the TRACE Scholar Programme.
