- James Upcher Memorial Scholarship
Fietta LLP and Oxford University Law Faculty have established a new DPhil scholarship in memory of James Upcher, who passed away tragically on 18 May 2017, aged 37.
The James Upcher Memorial Scholarship is intended to facilitate post-graduate study at Oxford by those who, like James, have a passion for public international law and its practical application as a force for good in today’s fast-changing world.
James was long-time friend and colleague, and one of the leading public international lawyers of his generation. He was also a mentor, humourist and an inspiration to all who worked with him and knew him well.
The first recipient of the Scholarship is Tsvetelina van Benthem of Merton College. Tsvetelina’s DPhil will analyse the international law status and implications of artificial intelligence in armed conflict.
