Anglo-Israel Scholarship

It is with thanks to the generosity of Master Rosalind Wright that we are able to offer this scholarship.

The scholarship will cover;

  • A return economy flight and travel insurance;
  • A stay of four weeks in Israel;
  • Accommodation.

The scholarship is aimed at applicants with an interest in commercial and international contract law who want to see how a fused profession works. It is open to Middle Temple members before, during or after pupillage. They must have successfully completed the BPTC at the time of commencing the scholarship. The successful candidate will have an opportunity of work experience in different (English-speaking) law firms and with individual judges in Tel Aviv. For the exact timing of the stay in Israel, the successful candidate will liaise with the law firms and judges direct.

In making their selection, the interviewing panel will consider candidates' merit according to the criteria which apply to all the Inn's scholarships, namely academic ability, motivation to succeed at the Bar, potential as an advocate, personal qualities such as self-reliance, independence, integrity, reliability, and the capacity to work effectively with clients, colleagues and chambers staff, as well as their interest in visiting Israel. The successful candidate will be expected to act while in Israel as an ambassador for Middle Temple and the Bar of England and Wales.

Priority may be given to suitable candidates who have not previously benefited from other equivalent awards.  The selection panel will, if it thinks fit, create a shortlist of candidates to be interviewed.

At the conclusion of the scholarship, a short report to the Inn of the time spent in Israel should be submitted to the Scholarships Officer.
