The Snedden Hall & Gallop University Scholarship turns 21 this year! Since we first awarded the scholarships in 1999, we’ve helped almost 40 aspiring lawyers by providing financial assistance during the first three years of their university studies. Many scholarship winners have also been able to join our team, even if only for a short time.

To commemorate this significant birthday, we’re going through the archives to give you an update on where some of those young stars are now.

In this profile we find out more about Sarah Henderson, who was a 2007 winner.
