Student prizes & awards

Student prizes and awards

Student prizes

A wide range of student prizes and awards are given each year by the ANU College of Law. Students are recognised with prizes for academic achievement in individual courses, specific legal topics and overall excellence throughout a student’s degree. These awards are an important part of recognising the achievements of our students, and providing those students with a tangible way in which they can demonstrate their dedication and application in studying law.

Annual prize ceremony

The ANU College of Law hosts an annual prize ceremony in March to recognise excellence in student performance, academic achievement and services. The prizes ceremony provides a valuable opportunity to highlight their considerable efforts and achievements. The College is fortunate to offer over 60 prizes to students which are generously supported by national and local law firms, Australian Government agencies, staff members and College donors. You can read about past prize recipients in our booklets.

Dean's Prizes

Dean's Prizes are awarded to exceptional students to recognise their achievements. The names of recipients of Dean’s Prizes from each year are listed in the prize ceremony booklets.
