The University of California Hastings offers a few selective merit based scholarships for exceptional LL.M. students. There is also need based assistance available.

You will also need to attach a word document briefly describing your financial need and why you are applying for a scholarship.

Please note that availabilities of such positions are extremely limited and are restricted to a part-time basis. Students are expected to have their own funds to cover a majority of cost incurred.
