Cambridge alumnus sponsors scholarship
An alumnus of the University of Cambridge, Prathiba M. Singh, has donated a scholarship that will enable Indian students to complete LL.M degree at the world-renowned Cambridge Faculty of Law.

Singh, who did her LL.B from Bangalore University, later gor her LL.M from Cambridge in 1992 on a full scholarship from the Cambridge Commonwealth Trust and then returned to India to work on intellectual property rights.

She is now the managing partner of Singh & Singh Law Firm in New Delhi, which she incorporated with her husband in 1997. Singh has handled and argued a large number of landmark cases in India including the Novartis case.

She also won the Euromoney Asia Women in Business Law Award 2012 for the best woman intellectual property litigator in Asia. Her firm has been hailed as the Firm of the Year at the 2013 Managing Intellectual Property Global Awards.

"This scholarship is the first step to make a contribution to the legal profession and give back what I got when I studied in Cambridge University," Singh said in a statement issued by the university. "I hope meritorious Indian students avail this to do an LL.M with focus on IPR laws and return to India. The purpose is to encourage young bright lawyers to join litigation practice," she added.

The deadline for applications for the scholarship is Nov 15, 2013.
