Cleary Memorial Prize


The Cleary Memorial Prize was instituted in memory of Sir Timothy Cleary, past President of both the Wellington District and New Zealand Law Societies and a Judge of the Court of Appeal until his death in 1962.

This award recognises and commemorates the fine example Sir Timothy’s own life has set for young people entering the profession.

In 2008, the Law Foundation took over administration of the award from the New Zealand Law Society who had administered it since 1964. The original intent of the prize was retained and the value increased to $5,000.

Applications are open to any barrister and/or solicitor of the High Court of New Zealand who has been admitted during the period of three years ending on 31 August in the year of the award.

Value $5,000 annually.


Applications close 5pm 30th September each year.

Please refer to our How to Apply page for details about making applications for the Cleary Memorial Prize.
