The Phillipa Weeks Scholarship supports students from regional and remote areas to pursue a Bachelor of Laws at ANU Law. The scholarship pays tribute to Phillipa Weeks, who attended school in country NSW before she was awarded a scholarship to study law at ANU. Since 2008, the scholarship has supported students to move to Canberra to study from all over Australia including Dubbo, Tamworth, Bombala, Townsville and Gelorup.
As Australia’s national law school, ANU Law educates tomorrow’s lawyers, leaders and policy makers. Underpinned by our deep-seated and long-held focus on law reform and social justice, we encourage our students to question how and why law does and doesn’t work, and consider their part in reform. From the very beginning, inclusiveness has been a central value of the law school. Financial or social barriers or cultural nuances should not limit students with the academic potential and commitment to learning that a quality legal education at ANU demands.
We have a range of opportunities for you to support ANU Law students, and vital research that addresses the great legal, social and political challenges of the 21st century. Please contact Jo James if you would like to explore supporting a specific area or initiative.
The Freilich Indigenous Law Scholarship supports students from Indigenous communities who want to attend ANU to study law and further their career aspirations. This scholarship is vital in providing financial support and confidence to assist Indigenous students in completing their law degree at ANU and achieving their full potential.
The Leslie Zines Endowment supports ANU Law academics and research students to undertake intensive research at the University of Cambridge. This research supports and develops global collaborations and cross-disciplinary research opportunities with academics, government, industry and the legal profession producing research-led teaching and significant contributions to public debate and policy-making.
The ANU Law London legal internships supports law students to undertake a supervised internship with a London legal firm / Barrister. This experience is unique to ANU Law and allows recipients to gain realistic, high-level and varied work experience and exposure to the practice of law in the UK.
