30th anniversary of the “Jim Hurlock – White & Case” Scholarship

The "Jim Hurlock – White & Case" Scholarship Program

Established in 1995, the "Jim Hurlock – White & Case" Scholarship Program aims at supporting and encouraging students who want to complete a postgraduate degree in law abroad. The €60,000 grant enables three students to continue their studies at a foreign university of their choice.

Through this scholarship program, White & Case promotes academic excellence and shares its principles of solidarity and mutual aid. Since its creation, 96 students have benefited from the "Jim Hurlock – White & Case" Scholarship Program.

The "Jim Hurlock – White & Case" Scholarship now bears the name of his former chairman, Jim Hurlock, who passed away in 2016. After working in the New York office, Jim Hurlock managed the Bruxelles, Paris, and London offices; and then became the White & Case Chairman in 1980. During his 20 years at this position, he greatly expanded White & Case presence around the world and was among the principal supports of this scholarship, created by Rosine Lorotte in 1995. As one of the laureates of the Princeton's Pyne Prize and the Oxford's Rhodes Scholarship himself, he was convinced of the importance for an international law firm to "be able to rely on lawyers trained to different international laws and ready to advise clients on cross-border operations".
