The application deadline is fast approaching for students pursuing graduate studies in criminal law. Up to two scholarships are available. The criteria for the selection of the recipients of the annual scholarship are as follows:
The scholarship will be awarded to a graduating student of the College of Law, University of Saskatchewan or to a resident practicing member of The Law Society of Saskatchewan for the pursuit of graduate studies in criminal law at a recognized institution. The recipient will be selected on the basis of academic record and research potential, service to the practice of law in Saskatchewan, and such other guidelines as from time to time may be determined appropriate by the committee.
The scholarship endowment fund was set up in perpetuity as a tribute to the former Chief Justice E.M. Culliton, who served as a Justice of the Court of Appeal from 1951 to 1962, and then became Chief Justice for the period of 1962 to 1981. Learn more about his contributions to the province at SaskLawCourts.ca.
The Law Society of Saskatchewan is pleased to continue to support local Saskatchewan students pursuing their goals in the legal field. Our own Melanie Hodges Neufeld, Director of legal Resources, was the recipient of the scholarship in 2005:
Without the financial support of the Culliton Scholarship, it would have been difficult to continue with my graduate work in the area of restorative justice. Not only was I able to pursue my intellectual interests, but contribute an important research piece to the criminal justice field in the province.
