The Lawrie McCredie Student Support Program

Lawrie McCredie

Lawrie McCredie CBE AM was a teacher, mentor, administrator, friend and colleague to hundreds of staff and thousands of law students at Monash Law.

Over 30 years he built a reputation as an inspiring teacher, a keen scholar (in the field of wills and probate), and an admired Sub Dean. The Lawrie McCredie Student Support Program honours Lawrie’s memory and continues his work.

The law scholarship assists law students through leadership development, the acknowledgement of excellence, community engagement and service, peer-to-peer and alumni mentoring, pastoral care, counselling, and careers advice.
