Clifford Gouldson Lawyers has announced the establishment of the CGLaw Endowment Fund with the University of Southern Queensland. The fund has been established through a financial gift from CGLaw, matched by the university, that will award a perpetual prize each year to a USQ student. The CGLaw fund will provide a prize in either Civil Procedure or Advanced Civil Procedure to the top performing student.

CGLaw managing director Ben Gouldson said the firm has strong connections with the university. “Our firm has a long history of working with USQ both as a supplier of legal services and as a critical member of the business community in Toowoomba,” Mr Gouldson said. “As our local university and home of Toowoomba’s only law course, we are very proud to partner with USQ to offer this perpetual prize.

“USQ has three campuses (Toowoomba, Ipswich and Springfield), consistently ranks in the top 2% of universities worldwide, and its graduates consistently rank highest in Australia for graduate employment and salaries. I am personally a proud USQ graduate in commerce and the firm has had great success employing current and former USQ law students,” he said.

CGLaw directors Amanda Tolson, Danny Clifford, and Ben Gouldson were recently joined with USQ professors Reid Mortensen and Caroline Hart at the firm to celebrate the endowment fund. Clifford Gouldson Lawyers is a leading regional provider of legal services to the business, government and not-for-profit sectors.

Established in Toowoomba more than 10 years ago with a commitment to offering specialised expertise in a regional setting, Clifford Gouldson Lawyers provide services across multiple offices within Queensland and interstate. Lawyers are given the opportunity to focus on discrete practice areas so they can build genuine expertise and specialised experience.
