University Scholarship Program
Stacks/The Law Firm is proud to offer the Stacks/The Law Firm University Scholarship program. Many of our offices participate in this program, offering a university scholarship to a local student who is proposing to commence a law degree or a combined law degree in the year following their HSC. Each school in an area where a participating Stacks office is located will be invited to nominate a student who meets the criteria.
Each scholarship is to the value of $8,000 to be paid by $1000 each six months for the four years of their course. The successful applicants will also be given the opportunity to do work experience and/or to work during university vacations with the Stacks office offering the scholarship.
Judging will be carried out by a panel of three. A Dean of the Faculty of Law of a University will be invited to Chair. The students nominated by their schools will be invited to make a public presentation to the panel at a local Court, followed by an individual interview.
It is intended that these scholarships will encourage bright students from our local high schools to consider a career in the Law. It is hoped that scholarship winners will build up a relationship with Stacks/The Law Firm so that they will eventually return to work in the local area.
Procedure to Apply
For more information and to find out if your local Stacks office participates in the Stacks/The Law Firm university scholarship program please contact our Head Office.
