Danielle Sirmai Memorial Award

A brilliant young lawyer is fondly remembered by family, friends and colleagues through the Danielle Sirmai Memorial Award to provide financial support to UNSW Law students.

This Award provides funds for one UNSW Law student each year to undertake either an internship or course of study with an organisation/institution located outside Australia. The focus of study is international commercial arbitration or private international law, nominated in Danielle's honour, as it was her passion and ultimately her professional area of expertise.

Ngoc Tram Nguyen Scholarship

The Ngoc Tram Nguyen Scholarship is a UNSW Law 40th Anniversary Scholarship that was established to support a socio-economically disadvantaged student from a non-selective, public secondary school located in South West Sydney.  The scholarship has a value of $5,000 per year for the 5 years of an undergraduate law degree. 

UNSW Law hopes to award five of these scholarships – one for a student in each stage of the undergraduate law degree.  So far, UNSW Law has awarded two, and is very close to awarding number three. Please help a disadvantaged young person to achieve their potential at the UNSW Law School.

Kingsford Legal Centre (KLC)

Through KLC students work with real clients with real needs. This creates powerful forms of learning and promotes critical thinking about the whole legal system and the role of the lawyer and client within it.

‘KLC manages an average of 80 cases at any one time, offering high-quality legal services to the NSW community in the course of its innovative, dynamic education of lawyers. In 2007 it took on 146 new cases. Its social impact is significant. To cite just one example: the practices of all Australian health insurance companies changed after KLC ran a test case for a same-sex couple that was denied family health insurance.’

Indigenous Legal Education Programs

UNSW Law School has always recognised that social disadvantage requires an affirmative admission program for Indigenous students. However, assisted admission, without intensive preparation and ongoing support risks setting Indigenous people up for failure. We run an intensive month long preparatory law program for Indigenous students, plus specialised first year courses, intensive tutoring and peer mentoring. UNSW is now the national leader in producing Indigenous law graduates. We urgently need financial help to sustain this highly successful project that is real reconciliation in action. Read more...

Indigenous Law Centre

The Indigenous Law Centre (ILC) is dedicated to empowering Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians to make Indigenous disadvantage a thing of the past.  The Centre equips Indigenous community members with the knowledge and the skills needed to take a stand and to have a voice in relation to the issues that directly impact their lives and their communities.

The ILC is the only Indigenous law research centre in Australia.  Although previously funded by the Federal Attorney General’s Department, the Attorney General recently announced that all funding of the ILC ceases from July 2014.  The ILC is in urgent need of financial support if it is to continue its work in empowering members of our Indigenous communities to play a meaningful role in shaping their futures.
