Why support Sydney Law School?

As one of the world’s leading law schools, we are committed to distinction across all aspects of our activities. Distinction for our students to ensure they receive the most challenging and rigorous legal education that will prepare them for career advancement. Distinction for our staff to deliver high quality teaching and remain committed to outstanding legal scholarship. Distinction in research to deliver the latest and most innovative perspectives on the ever-changing and evolving global legal landscape. By giving to Sydney Law School you can make sure this commitment to distinction remains and grows stronger in years to come.

What areas can I support?

You can make a difference by donating towards our scholarships to support study in our Bachelor of Laws (LLB), Juris Doctor (JD), Master of Laws (LLM) or our research degrees.

Many of our scholarships stem from generous bequests and donations from our alumni and friends. Choose to contribute to one the existing reputable scholarship initiatives or get in touch to discuss how you could establish a scholarship.
