GDLP Indigenous Law Student Scholarship Program


The Law Society and The University of Adelaide are pleased to announce the continuation of their joint GDLP Indigenous Law Student Scholarship Program, after the success of the inaugural scholarship in 2016. 

One Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander law student per year will have their mandatory practical legal training course program fully paid for as part of the scholarship.

The GDLP scholarship – a joint initiative between the Law Society and The University of Adelaide – is one of several programs the Law Society is involved in to promote reconciliation and a “fair go” for indigenous people. 

Applications are now open for the 2017 GDLP scholarship and must be submitted through the following link https://unified.adelaide.edu.au/group/law-school/gdlp-scholarships. The recipient must be eligible to commence the GDLP by 1 August 2017.

Applications close on 12 May 2017 and the recipient will be announced in June 2017. For inquiries, please get in touch with the Law Society’s Ms Sally Browne Sally.Browne@lawsocietysa.asn.au or the Adelaide Law School’s Dr Manuel Solis manuelpeter.solis@adelaide.edu.au.
