Supporting tomorrow's legal professionals

At Rose lawyers, we know our future depends on people like you. That's because those who strive for excellence in their studies often go on to achieve great things in law. And it's that kind of passionate person we love to encourage. To help nurture. And to support through their studies.

So every year, we offer a $2,000 scholarship to law students. The scholarship, awarded for initiative and forward-thinking, helps students afford the tools they need to excel.

We want to recognise excellence in legal studies. And to reward students for hard work and willingness to engage in debate with the legal sector.

So we provide a selected student with $2,000 to help cover course costs. It can also be used to purchase relevant textbooks, research materials and technical equipment.

On completion of their studies, students recognised under the Rose Lawyers Scholarship Program may also be considered for an internship with us - or even full-time employment.

The Rose Lawyers Scholarship Program provides $2,000 for a selected student each year.

About Rose Lawyers

At Rose Lawyers, we don’t look or talk like attorneys - unless we’re in court, representing our clients. Instead, our aim is to be approachable. To be personable. And to make the law less complicated for our clients.

That's why we help them identify, understand and manage the risks and benefits of their situation. And it's why we provide easy-to-understand advice based on our extensive expertise and experience.
