The following announcement may be of interest to Chinese students:
Interviews for International LL.M. Scholarship at UMKC School of Law
The University of Missouri at Kansas City (UMKC) School of Law has a long established relationship with China and Chinese Law Schools, and has been inviting Chinese students to study law in Kansas City for more than a decade. We are bringing Chinese students here to broaden the perspective of our American students and faculty, and to bring about better preparation for the future worldwide marketplace, in which American and Chinese lawyers must cooperate. We are not interested in making a lot of money from Chinese student tuition.
Therefore, UMKC Law School offers a Generous Scholarship Program for LLM students. We will offer as many as fifteen partial scholarships, to reduce the already low cost of our general law LLM program.
One hundred percent of the LLM graduates from UMKC who have taken the New York Bar have passed.
The statement set forth at http://www1.law.umkc.edu/academic/china/llm/overview.htm
will give you complete information about the LL.M. program at UMKC School of Law. At that website, you can watch an interview (in Chinese) with two of our current LLM candidates concerning their experiences studying in America and their experience at UMKC.
An interview is required to qualify for admission and scholarship. Interviews will occur [in China - ed.] in late November and December of 2006, and, if positions remain open, additional interviews may occur in March of 2007.
Professor Patrick Randolph, director of the Chinese programs at UMKC School of Law, and director of the Peking University Center for Real Estate Law, will conduct interviews for the programs. Please contact Nancy Kunkel, Program Coordinator, via email at firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange an appointment. Mrs. Kunkel’s telephone number is (816) 235-1647 and her fax number is (816) 235-5276.
