WEIR performs work for a range of private enterprises and public agencies and has been appointed to a number of local, state and federal government schemes and panels. WEIR regularly receives instructions from law firms on behalf of their clients.
Instructing solicitors can be confident that our work will be procedurally fair, will be conducted on a truly independent, third-party basis and with proper analysis and assessment of evidence.
We also take into consideration the employer’s duty of care so as to minimise the risk of alleged adverse action, claims of reprisal, victimisation and retaliation, particularly when addressing allegations of serious harassment in the workplace. Likewise, claims that there has been a breach in workplace bullying laws and sexual harassment legislation require careful consideration of the relevant legislation, its caselaw and associated policies. WEIR consultants have the knowledge and skills to handle these complexities.
Application and Selection Process
Applicants must provide a statement supporting their application indicating how they believe receiving the scholarship will assist them with their studies and future careers. This statement should give a sufficient explanation of the applicant's background and current circumstances to enable the University to judge their eligibility, need and merit.
Successful applicants will be selected based on their written application, academic potential, ability to meet the criteria, and, where appropriate, performance in an interview before a selection panel.
In addition, applicants must demonstrate the rationale for seeking an equity-based scholarship (including but not limited to socio-economic challenges).
