Part of the Law Society of NSW Student Awards Program, this award recognises and celebrates the outstanding achievements of students in the subject of Professional Conduct.
The Law Society of NSW Student Awards Program was introduced to recognise exceptional talent and achievement by students in areas of core value to the Law Society of NSW and the legal profession.
As officers of the court, solicitors are responsible for upholding the administration of justice in our society. This forms the basis of our ethical obligations and sets us apart from other professions.
To recognise this, in 2023, the Law Society has introduced its new Excellence in Professional Conduct Award. This award is aligned with core Law Society of NSW values and aims to recognise the significant achievement of students in the subject of Professional Conduct and celebrate their contributions towards a more ethical and fair justice system for the future.
