Dean of Law's Fund
One of the most significant changes to the Adelaide Law School is the composition of our student body which now reflects more closely the diverse society which the law serves. With this comes a challenging reality for financially disadvantaged students who, without support, might not be able to attend law school.
This is not a scholarship, but a fund to assist those students who may be in crisis as a result of strained financial circumstances.
The need for such a fund was greater than we had anticipated and therefore have since established a committee to administer the fund on a more formal basis. That committee consists of The Honourable Margaret Nyland AM (LL B 1964) as chair, with committee members, Mr Robert Cameron (LL B 1975), Emeritus Professor Ivan Shearer AM (LL B 1960 & LL M 1965), Mr David Meyer (LLB 1972) and myself as Dean of the School. We undertake the task of reviewing all student applications for funds and distributing them as equitably as possible.
I invite you to consider making a pledge or donation to the Dean of Law's Fund which will provide students an opportunity to focus on their studies without the pressure or distraction of financial difficulties.

"It is important to remember that learning is not a static experience but a lifelong commitment and I have found, to adopt the words of Aristotle, that 'education is an ornament in prosperity and a refuge in adversity'." The Honourable Margaret Nyland AM
