Peter A. Allard School of Law

Message from the Dean

Dean Catherine Dauvergne

The start an evolution campaign transformed the landscape of the Peter A. Allard School of Law at UBC, thanks to the tremendous generosity and commitment of alumni, the legal community, foundations, and other supporters of the law school.  In 2011, the law school embarked on an ambitious goal to raise $75 million and to engage 3,200 alumni. I am delighted to report that the Faculty raised $83 million and engaged 6,400 alumni.  These results reflect the deep commitment of our supporters to enhancing legal education and research at the Allard School of Law.  

The start an evolution campaign illustrates what happens when involvement and investment are combined with the energy of our students and the dedication of our faculty members.  The Allard School of Law is on an exciting trajectory in terms of global reach and I look forward to working with our many supporters to generate and implement the next ideas that will shape the future of the Faculty. 

I hope you enjoy reading the stories about some of the remarkable gifts and initiatives that took place during the start an evolution campaign.
