Doctor of Laws 'ad eundem gradum'

Doctor of Laws 'ad eundem gradum' conferred to 1951

There was no provision before 1951 for conferring of honorary degrees by the University of Sydney. Therefore, until the 'University and University Colleges Act 1900' was amended confirming Senate's power to confer honorary degrees, the University awarded a number of degrees 'ad eundem gradum' - mostly Doctor of Laws - as a mark of honour. Those who received this award included members of the Royal Family, Governors-General, distinguished soldiers and leaders of industry.
