The Kapila & Nirmal Hingorani Foundation Pegasus Scholarship 2024

The Kapila & Nirmal Hingorani Foundation Pegasus Scholarship, a joint venture between The Kapila & Nirmal Hingorani Foundation and the Pegasus Scholarship Trust, aims to provide young lawyers in India with first-hand experience of the working of the legal system in England and Wales over a period of eight weeks.

The Scholarship would entail spending three to four weeks each at two different sets of barristers’ chambers in London which practice in the scholar’s preferred areas of law. These placements would involve opportunities to see advocacy in action, and the scholar would typically be asked to assist with research and/or drafting.

The scholar would usually get to visit various institutions such as the Supreme Court, the High Court and the Old Bailey, where the scholar would be looked after by a Judge of that Court for the day.

The scholar would be provided with a stipend to cover living costs and would also be given assistance in securing accommodation in London. The Scholarship does not cover any other expenses, such as return flight tickets, visa, travel-related costs and insurance (medical/health, travel).

Applications are invited for two Kapila & Nirmal Hingorani Foundation Pegasus Scholarships to be availed of in the year 2024. The applicant should:

  • be a citizen of India
  • be a practicing lawyer in India
  • have been in practice for less than seven years on the date of the submission of the application.
