This private initiative, which has been meeting every year since 1995 and is unique in terms of quantity and selection, aims to enable students to add an international dimension to university careers. The amounts allocated under the White & Case Bursary contribute to easing the burden of the loan that students have taken out due to the high costs of studying abroad. Through this scholarship, White & Case wants to promote excellence while cultivating the values of solidarity and mutual aid that are dear to her. Since its inception in 1995, 85 students have benefited from the scholarship and more than 1,000 have applied.
This year, the jury was chaired by Elisabeth Pelsez, Judge, Inspector General of Justice, Director General of the GIP “Memorial Museum of the Terrorism Memorial Museum” and former inter-ministerial delegate for victim assistance. This also included Loïc Aubouin, legal director of Groupe ADP; Rodney De-Souza, Head of the Law and Data Protection Division of the World Organization for Animal Health and Member 2006; Antoine Tadros, Associate Professor of the University; Amaury de Feydeau and Clara Hainsdorf, partners of the company; as well as Jean-Pierre Picca, a partner in the company responsible for the stock market.
