A new Indigenous ‘Excellence in Law Award’ scholarship is now on offer to females of Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander descent.

There are currently two First Nations women practising at the Bar in Queensland.

Applicants must be enrolled in the penultimate or final year of study at Griffith University in a Bachelor of Laws (Honours) or double degree program, to be eligible.

Applications are open until Tuesday 1 February, 4pm. Visit the website for details, or consider further supporting emerging female Indigenous lawyers by donating to the scholarship. Contact d.rennie@griffith.edu.au for more information.
