Generous gift to Kercher Scholarship

The ANLHS has received a generous gift from South Auckland law firm Kayes Fletcher Walker to the Kercher Scholarship fund. Kercher scholarships are awarded on the basis of merit to postgraduate students for help defraying the cost of attending and presenting at the annual ANLHS conference.

The generous gift from Kayes Fletcher Walker will enable an additional Kercher Scholarship be awarded when an applicant meets one of the following criteria, in addition to the general criteria set out in relation to the Kercher scholarship. An additional Kercher scholarship may be awarded to a post-graduate student whose research project:

  • addresses Indigenous people and legal history; or
  • engages Mātauranga Māori or another Indigenous knowledge system; or
  • adopts kaupapa Māori or another Indigenous research methodology.

About anzlhswebsite

The Australian and New Zealand Law and History Society was formed in 1993. It is an interdisciplinary group of scholars who share an interest in the connections between law and history. The society grew out of the annual Law in History Conferences, which have been running since 1982. Members of the society include historians, lawyers, academics and others interested in the area. Most of the members live in Australia or New Zealand, but their areas of interest are not confined to the law in those places. The society is an incorporated association in New South Wales.
