Vinerian Scholarship

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Vinerian Scholarship is a scholarship given to the University of Oxford student who "gives the best performance in the examination for the Degree of Bachelor of Civil Law". Currently, £2,500 is given to the winner of the scholarship, with an additional £950 awarded at the examiners' discretion to a proxime accessit (runner-up).[1]

The Vinerian Scholarship is the most prestigious law scholarship awarded by the University of Oxford. Past award holders have distinguished themselves in the judiciary, legal practice, academia, civil service and in other fields. The list of scholars since 1929 includes two former Law Lords (Lord Hoffmann and Lord Saville), and justices of the highest courts in Australia (Dyson Heydon and Patrick Keane), Canada (Ronald Martland) and South Africa (Edwin Cameron).[2]
