Rebecca Penfold selected for Pegasus Scholorship

10 September 2015

From 19th September Rebecca Penfold will be in the USA as an outgoing Pegasus Scholar. Rebecca will be spending the majority of her scholarship in Washington DC, but will also travel to Chicago, Indiana, Missouri, Delaware and California. She will be working with the American Bar Association and will have unparalleled opportunities to visit key political and legal institutions such as the White House and the Supreme Court.

As Lord Goff of Chieveley, the First Chairman of the Pegasus Scholarship Trust, has said, "The Pegasus scholarship scheme makes it possible for gifted young lawyers – the future leaders of their professions – to learn about the practical working of the common law system in countries other than their own, and to form enduring links with lawyers in those countries."

During the scholarship Rebecca will remain contactable via email and will continue to work on her cases. Rebecca will return to Chambers on November 16th. All those at Drystone wish her the very best for a fruitful and worthwhile scholarship.
