Giving to MLS

In 2017, Peter McMullin (BCom/LLB 1974) and Ruth McMullin made one of the most significant gifts in Melbourne Law School's history to establish the world's only academic centre devoted to the problem of statelessness.

MLS alumnus Peter McMullin speaks on statelessness and philanthropy.

Gifts of any size make a difference at Melbourne Law School. You can make a donation to one of our scholarships funds supporting talented students in financial need, or to our Foundation, Library or Highest Priorities fund detailed below. Donations of over $2 are tax-deductible in Australia for Australian tax payers.

Lend your support to one or more of these areas:

Cheryl Saunders Scholarship

Named for Laureate Professor Emeritus Cheryl Saunders AO (BA 1966 Arts, LLB(Hons) 1966, PhD Law 1976), the Cheryl Saunders Scholarship supports Melbourne Law School students demonstrating financial need.

Daniel B Wright Scholarship

Family and friends of Dan Wright created this scholarship in 2016 to memorialise Dan Wright, who passed away shortly after commencing his second semester of the Juris Doctor in 2012. This scholarship will reward JD students who have demonstrated excellence in one or more public law subjects, reflecting Dan’s passion for human rights, refugee law and international law.

Melbourne University Law School Foundation

The Foundation exists for the promotion of excellence in education, study, teaching and research at Melbourne Law School. Donations to the Foundation are an investment in the Law School's long-term future.

Melbourne Law School's Highest Priorities

Making an unrestricted gift to Melbourne Law School helps us fulfil our highest-priority tasks.

Norman M O'Bryan Scholarship

Family, friends and former colleagues of The Honourable Justice Norman M O'Bryan (LLB 1953) have committed to working with Melbourne Law School to raise funds for the purpose of establishing one or more scholarships to support JD students who have demonstrated high academic merit and financial need.

Law Library

The Law Library has one of the finest legal collections in Australia, including rare books and extensive online resources. Making a gift to the Law Library helps support student study needs while maintaining the highest-quality and most up-to-date legal resources.

Women in Tax Scholarship
