Mannheimer Swartling sponsors scholarship programme in International Commercial Arbitration Law at Stockholm University for Chinese law graduates

Mannheimer Swartling is pleased to announce its support of a scholarship programme for Chinese law graduates seeking to attend the Master of International Commercial Arbitration Law (ICAL) programme at Stockholm University. The ICAL programme is one of the world’s most renowned master of laws programmes for international commercial arbitration.

Stockholm has long been one of the most favoured places in the world for international arbitration and is widely recognised as a stimulating environment to study both the theory and practice of international arbitration. The highly developed arbitration community in Stockholm offers a unique opportunity for students to learn from experienced practitioners, respected arbitrators, and visiting professors. The Stockholm Chamber of Commerce (SCC) supports the masters programme with internships and lectures, and works closely with members of the programme’s faculty to connect students and practitioners. During the past decade more than 300 graduates from about 70 countries have participated in the programme.

Graduates of Chinese law schools are welcome to apply for the full-tuition scholarships. Information about the scholarships and the ICAL programme may be obtained on Stockholm University’s website.

Mannheimer Swartling co-operates with the ICAL programme and is a founding sponsor of the scholarship programme that enables three highly qualified Chinese law students to participate in the one-year LLM, post-graduate programme at Stockholm University. Mannheimer Swartling is joined by Swedish law firms Gernandt & Danielsson and Vinge in donating the scholarships.
