The Sir Adrian Solomons Memorial Law Bursary was first given in 1998. It provides financial assistance for the successful applicant during their first year as well as an opportunity to gain valuable work experience in our offices periodically throughout the duration of their studies.
The Principals of local High Schools have been contacted and advised of the correct format for submitting applications. Interested students should liaise with the Principal or Careers Advisor of their school, who will assist them in making a formal application for this Bursary.
We emphasise that the selection process does not depend solely on academic merit. We appreciate that students come from a variety of backgrounds and accordingly the selection process concentrates on the attributes of the student as a whole, rather than solely academic achievement.
The Bursary has gained widespread interest since its inception and continues to provide a valuable opportunity for current Year 12 students wishing to pursue a legal career.
Everingham Solomons view the Bursary as a continuing commitment to young people in the communities of Tamworth, Quirindi, Manilla and Gunnedah and we encourage interested students to apply.
Applications will be accepted until 30 September, 2014 with interviews conducted during October. A final decision as to the recipient is made in January once university acceptances are confirmed.
