The BFSLA scholarship was a huge help towards making my dream of attending Columbia Law School a reality. My LLM degree has opened up a vast array of new, global opportunities for me. For those thinking of applying for the scholarship, I would strongly encourage it!

Jaamae Hafeez-Baig
With the support of the BFSLA Scholarship, I read for the Bachelor of Civil Law (BCL) at the University of Oxford in 2019–2020. My year in Oxford remains one of the best of my professional life—I made lifelong friends from all over the world, I was taught by some of the leading academics in the common law world, and I learned more than I thought was possible in the space of a year. The skills and knowledge I acquired on the BCL have been invaluable in my career since. I cannot thank the BFSLA enough for helping to make one of my dreams a reality.
