The purpose of the Scholarship is to honour the life and achievements of Vanessa Hardman, a UNSW Law alumna and member of the UNSW UK Foundation Board, and will inspire current and future UNSW Law students to emulate her achievements and embark on a rewarding international career.

Vanessa's fortitude, guts and sheer determination to stay positive despite the vagaries of life should be an inspiration to us all - this scholarship is a fitting memorial to an alumna of UNSW who was a true professional, mentor to her colleagues and who demonstrated to those fortunate to know her that you must live life to the full.

The Scholarship will also provide an additional amount if the student is accepted on a UNSW approved international exchange program in the UK in the final year of study and this will be $2,000.
