The Bateman Battersby Law Bursary, first offered in 1990, was established to encourage further legal education amongst students attending high schools in the Penrith and Blue Mountains local government areas and to date there have been 26 recipients.
Each year the Bursary is open to students who, upon completion of their Higher School Certificate or International Baccalaureate, intend applying for admission to a full-time University Law course in Sydney, Wollongong, Newcastle or the ACT.
The winner of the Bursary is the student who, of all the applicants, achieves the highest ATAR (HSC, or converted IB mark), and can confirm admission to an approved law course on or before 5.00pm on 17 February 2017.
In the case that more than one applicant shares the highest ATAR, the Bursary is shared. The Winner of the Bursary receives a grant of $1000.00 and a Bateman Battersby Bursary Winner's Trophy.
Information about the Bursary is distributed to the Legal Studies Teacher of High Schools in the Penrith, St Marys and Blue Mountains region in the second school term of each year.
