Full Tuition Straus Scholarships

Full-Tuition Scholarship for the 2019 Academic Year

Pepperdine has partnered with a distinguished dispute resolution organization for the 2019 - 2020 academic year to provide a full-tuition scholarship for students in the LLM Program. 


JAMS Scholarship

The Straus Institute for Dispute Resolution at Pepperdine School of Law is pleased to announce that JAMS is sponsoring a full-tuition scholarship for Pepperdine's LLM in Dispute Resolution program. JAMS is the largest for-profit provider of mediation and arbitration services in the United States, with offices in more than 25 cities and more than 300 retired judges and senior lawyers on its panel. JAMS has been focusing on international opportunities, including the opening of an office in London, and sees this scholarship as an expression of its support for future practitioners.  

Application Instructions

Interested students should send a two-page letter explaining why they would like to be selected for the JAMS Scholarship with their application.

The letter should be send directly and exclusively to the following email address: strausscholarships@pepperdine.edu.

Each letter should be unique to the scholarship applied and should also address the following:

1. How would an LL.M. from Pepperdine advance your short and long term professional goals?;
2. What areas of inquiry in the DR arena are of most interest to you?; and
3. How would the scholarship affect your ability to attend? (The scholarship will be based largely on merit, but financial need may be considered when applicants are equally qualified)

Scholarship applications will be due by 11:59 PM (PST), on March 1, 2019. Applicants are encouraged to apply early.

In addition to the full-tuition scholarship, Pepperdine provides partial scholarships at the point of admission. Priority deadline for partial scholarships is February 15.

In preparation for the LL.M. program, International LL.M. students may want to participate in Pepperdine's U.S. Law and Legal Writing Seminar, offering a four-week Legal English intensive experience in July.
