John Kable Memorial Tasmania University Scholarship In Law

This scholarship is provided by the estate of the late John Kable QC, a noted Tasmanian barrister.

John was a terrific sportsman and student, graduating from the University of Tasmania with a law degree in 1975. He went on to forge a career as a prominent barrister in Launceston and Hobart. In 1995 John died suddenly from a heart attack aged only 42. Mrs Kable was profoundly affected by her son’s death and for the next 20 years supported the Heart Foundation as a donor and by becoming heavily involved in fundraising events.  

The full story of the publication is removed from the latest version of the Heart Foundation website.

The painting is also (temporarily) taken down by the University, see this article from the ABC.
