The Institute of European and Comparative Law is delighted to announce the establishment of two scholarships, funded through the generosity of Professor Guido Alpa (Professore ordinario di diritto civile at the University of Rome Sapienza, and a member of the Advisory Council of the Institute), which will enable an exchange between doctoral research students or early career scholars at the Oxford Law Faculty and research students at the University of Rome Sapienza.

Two scholarships of £5,000 will be offered each academic year: one to a scholar from the Oxford Law Faculty for the purposes of up to two months’ study at the University of Rome Sapienza; the other to a scholar from the Faculty of Law of the University of Rome Sapienza for the purposes of up to two months’ study at Oxford. The students visiting from Rome will be hosted by the Institute of European and Comparative Law.
