Jones Day Establishes Scholarship for Moritz' New LL.M. for International Students
The new LL.M. Program for Foreign Lawyers which will seat its first class in August 2007
February 26, 2007
The Moritz College of Law LL.M. Program for Foreign Lawyers is proud and grateful to announce that it will begin its new LL.M. Program supported by the continuing generosity of Jones Day, one of the world's largest and most successful international firms.
Jones Day, with an international presence and reputation in numerous foreign countries, has a particularly strong presence in the Pacific Rim and has played a major role in internationalizing the role lawyers play in the legal and business matters of their multi-national and international clients.
In keeping with its trend to help globalize the marketplace, Jones Day has once again turned its generosity and support towards the Moritz College of Law by sponsoring a scholarship in the amount of over $30,000, which will provide either a full scholarship for one legally talented Chinese lawyer, or two partial scholarships, to study with their U.S. colleagues in Moritz' new LL.M. Program for Foreign Lawyers.
Spearheading the initiative to provide scholarship funds for the new LL.M. Program were Managing Partner Stephen J. Brogan and the Partners in Charge of the Houston and Columbus offices of Jones Day, Moritz alumni Hugh R .Whiting '74 and Fordham E. Huffman '80, respectively.
In a recent conversation, Mr. Huffman explained the impetus behind the new Jones Day scholarship: "Given Jones Day's long-standing and successful relationship with OSU's Moritz College of Law, the global footprint of the firm, and its growing presence in China, providing a Jones Day scholarship to encourage qualified Chinese lawyers to enter the new LL.M. Program seemed both appropriate and mutually beneficial."
The Moritz College of Law is grateful for the support of its new LL.M. Program for Foreign Lawyers, which will seat its first class in August 2007.
