Delegations from two law schools have met in Pakistan this week to discuss the future course of their academic collaboration, specifically in regard to Pakistani students who wish to study law in the UK. The agreement to support law students from this country will apply to LLB and LLM candidates alike.
The two law schools that will continue to exchange their best practices and prepare students for their legal state exams as part of their mutually beneficial partnership are the Shaheed Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto University of Law (SZABUL) from Pakistan and the University of Northampton (UoN) from the UK.
The first benefit this academic partnership will offer to law students will be a chance for Pakistanis to study abroad at the University of Northampton, where they will be accepted in both LLB and LLM programs, as well as given study visas and the financial support needed for living in a foreign country.
Professor Hastings McKenzie, Dean Academic Partnerships of the University of Northampton gave his promise to both Justice Qazi Khalid Ali, Vice-Chancellor of SZABUL and Federal Minister for Law and Justice Dr. Barrister Muhammad Farogh Naseem that UoN will start welcoming Pakistanis next year.
After their agreement is finalized, the University of Northampton will launch a special LLM program in June, while the LLB course aimed at Pakistani students will start accepting candidates in time for the new academic year, in September 2019. We wish them all the best in their academic endeavors.
