Jordan Phoustanis
I am very grateful to have received the BFSLA Scholarship to read the Bachelor of Civil Law at Oxford University in 2022/23. Receipt of the scholarship helped me achieve my long-held ambition of pursuing postgraduate study abroad. For the last nine months I have been immersing myself in the study of legal theory and doctrine at one of the most historically significant and intellectually vibrant law schools in the common law world. I have benefited greatly from the unique pedagogical method and dedication of eminent legal scholars (both from Oxford and abroad), and have embraced the opportunity to immerse myself in the ‘authentic Oxford experience’. I encourage others considering postgraduate study abroad to apply for the BFSLA Scholarship.

Studying the BCL at the University of Oxford has so far been an unparalleled opportunity to learn from the world’s best academics and acquire great depth of knowledge in my chosen subjects. I am thoroughly enjoying my subjects and I am grateful for the support of the BFSLA in getting here and look forward to the rest of my time in Oxford.

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!

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.
