Northumbria University student Martin Wilson has won a month working in the pro bono office of Australias Monash University on an all-expenses paid trip.
Irwin Mitchell is behind the new scholarship. The law firm has pledged 1,000 to the initiative as part of its support of the work undertaken by the universitys student law office.
The scholarship came about following a visit to the university by Mike Napier, the Attorney-Generals pro bono envoy and senior partner at Irwin Mitchell. Philip Plowden, Northumbrias associate dean responsible for the student law office, said: The firm had been operating in Newcastle for a year and had thought about funding a scholarship. Mike Napier came up, saw what we did, and was impressed.
The award is available to the third-year student who best demonstrates a commitment to pro bono work in the Student Law Office.
