Bob Piper Scholarship

In early 2013, Piper Alderman announced a partnership with the University of Adelaide which will recognise contribution of Mr Bob Piper to our firm and the Adelaide legal fraternity by awarding a scholarship to a second year law student who is facing financial hardship and who shows academic promise.

Mr Piper with scholarship recipient Jonathon Wenham, Adelaide Law School Dean, Prof John Williams and Piper Alderman Managing Partner, Tony Phelps.


The financial scholarship will be awarded for a two year period to a student who demonstrates an interest in corporate and commercial law, which we hope will be followed by a two year clerkship in the Adelaide office. It is the intention that this person would also be offered a graduate position with the firm.

Mr Piper continues to work in the Adelaide office, and provides a wealth of knowledge to clients and colleagues, especially in Wills and Estate matters.  In 2012, Mr Piper embarked on his 60 years in practice and has been a pivotal part of history in transitioning the firm from the merged Piper Bakewell Piper to Piper Alderman. Mr Piper also dedicates his time to community work by volunteering with Meals on Wheels each week.

In July 2013, the first Bob Piper Scholarship was awarded to second year Adelaide Law School student, Jonathon Wenham.
