LawTap Student Scholarship

The 2017 LawTap Student Scholarship has now closed. The 2018 LawTap Student Scholarship will open for submissions in November 2017.

LawTap is the online booking engine that connects lawyers and clients. LawTap also has a rich tradition in supporting all Australians to better understand the law. We have demonstrated this by funding LawAnswers.com.au, Australia's most popular online legal community since 2014, and sponsoring AustLII and various legal aid resources.

The Scholarship
