About the Webinar
Getting into good law school is tough. Getting a scholarship to study in a good law school is tougher.
Exorbitant law school fees discourage many potential candidates from applying to their dream college. This is where scholarships help. However, it’s important to understand that each scholarship is different. So, how you fill the form, write your essay/SOP, has to be tailored accordingly.
You need to be able to convey effectively through your writing. Having some guidance would also help. That is why we have a webinar that will help law students understand how to write effective scholarship essays.
The best part is that you get to learn from those who have themselves secured prestigious national and international scholarships!

- Chevening Scholarship
- Writing persuasive essays for your scholarship applications
- Date: August 15, 2021
