This scholarship has been established by Minter Ellison, an international law firm based in Australia. This scholarship is to benefit a student who is in their first year of a Bachelor of Laws program at the University of Adelaide in 2013. Further information can be found about this scholarship here
Yasmine, an indigenous student originally from the Northern Territory, is one of 18 indigenous students currently studying law at the University of Adelaide, a number which the University is working strongly to build on.
Minter Ellison has partnered with the University of Adelaide in 2013 for the first time to present this scholarship that will enable the selected student to undertake their law degree with the University.
For this first Minter Ellison Law Scholarship, applications were invited from first year law students studying at the University of Adelaide.
Professor John Williams commented, “Yasmine is a terrific student and I am thrilled that she has been selected to receive the inaugural Minter Ellison scholarship. I’m sure that Yasmine will be a credit to the legal profession in years to come.”
Adam Bannister said, “It is a privilege for us to be able to support Yasmine in her studies. She has done the hard work to get to this point and we are delighted to be able to provide the financial support to help her complete her degree.”
Adelaide Law School would like to thank Minter Ellison for their generous support of our Adelaide Law School students.
