Melbourne law graduate Matthew Eglezos has been awarded the 2010 Gaire Blunt Scholarship by the Law Council of Australia's Business Law Section.

Currently practicing in Freehills' litigation group, Eglezos won the scholarship for his essay, 'Recovering Cartel Damages: the Passing-On Defence Under the Trade Practices Act'.

A 2009 Monash University graduate, Eglezos finished with first class Honours in Law and received the Supreme Court Prize for Best Honours Student.

Eglezos also received the Monash University National Scholarship for Excellence, was a member of the Monash University Law Review editorial committee, and was involved in both national and international mooting competitions.

The scholarship was inaugurated in 2008 to commemorate the late Gaire Blunt, who was recognised as a leading competition law practitioner and was a partner at Allens Allen & Hemsley (now Allens Arthur Robinson) from 1970 to 2005.

Blunt was instrumental in shaping the form, regulation and administration of Australia's competition law, and was a member of the Trade Practices Committee of the Business Law Section and the first Consulting Editor to the CCH Trade Practices Reporter.

Blunt also played a leading role in developing and mentoring young lawyers.

The $5000 scholarship is aimed at lawyers at the junior stage of their career and will be offered annually for the next five years.
