US Law Schools To Fund Degrees For Ukrainian Lawyers

The University of Pittsburgh School of Law is working to bring several Ukrainian lawyers to the US to spend a year studying and undertaking pro bono work. The initiative comes as part of Pittsburgh’s Ukrainian Legal Assistance Project. 

Pittsburgh is committed to paying the Ukrainian LLM students’ tuition as well as covering their travel costs and living expenses as required. It will also help the students to obtain their visas. 

Due to Ukraine’s conscription rules, the students are mostly women who have fled Ukraine and are currently residing in European countries. However, the University of Pittsburgh has accepted two men who may be allowed to participate.

Other law schools across the US are also working to support Ukrainian lawyers, including the University of Miami School of Law and the University of Florida Levin College of Law. Both have opened up a scholarship for a Ukrainian law graduate to attend their LLM programme.
