2021 marks the 50th anniversary of UNSW Law & Justice. Help us plan for 50 more years by making a tax-deductible gift to the Law Endowment Fund to build on our history of success in research and scholarship. The Law Endowment Fund creates opportunities for UNSW Law & Justice to build a stronger faculty and community. Donate to the Law Endowment Fund.

This year also marks the 40th anniversary of two centres at UNSW Law & Justice - our Indigenous Law Centre and Kingsford Legal Centre.

Indigenous Law Centre is the peak research and advocacy body for the intersection of Law and Indigenous rights. Support Indigenous Law Centre.

Kingsford Legal Centre works directly with the local community surrounding the UNSW campus to provide pro bono and subsidised legal support. Support Kingsford Legal Centre.


The focus of our 50th anniversary year is supporting students in need. UNSW Law & Justice is matching gifts to these scholarships, up to $25,000. The priority scholarships for support this year are:

  • Named after our founding Dean, this scholarship will support students experiencing adversity or disadvantage to undertake a degree at UNSW Law & Justice.

  • This scholarship is named in honour of Judge Bob Bellear, UNSW alumnus and Australia’s first Indigenous judge. This scholarship is presented in partnership with the Shalom College Gamarada Program.

  • This scholarship honours the life and achievements of Vanessa Hardman, a UNSW Law & Justice alumna and member of the UNSW UK Foundation Board. Established in 2017, the scholarship will help future UNSW Law & Justice students carry on Vanessa’s legacy and embark on a rewarding international career.
