For more than 30 years Lawrie McCredie CBE AM served the Faculty of Law as a teacher, mentor, administrator, friend and colleague to hundreds of staff and thousands of law students.
Lawrie’s reputation as a teacher and a scholar in the field of wills and probate was exceeded only by his renown as the faculty’s Sub Dean. He was widely respected and admired and is remembered by all for his tireless support of students.
The Lawrie McCredie Student Support Program honours and continues his work. It provides much needed assistance to law students to enhance their student experience, build community and help them to develop leadership, communication and other highly valued skills.
The program’s main elements are: leadership development, the acknowledgement of excellence, community engagement and service, peer-to-peer and alumni mentoring, pastoral care, counselling, and careers advice.
