Al Lucas Scholarship in Energy and Environmental Law

To celebrate and recognize former Dean of Law Al Lucas's tremendous leadership both within in the law school and the legal community, several of his former students came together to create a scholarship in his honour.

Consumer Debt Negotiation Project

The COVID-19 pandemic has hit Albertans hard. Layoffs, job losses and business closures all triggered financial chaos in our communities. Law students have also been impacted, and more than 50 law students across Alberta have been unable to secure articling positions.

Through the Consumer Debt Negotiation Project with UCalgary Law’s Public Interest Law Clinic, law students will be able to work alongside volunteer lawyers to complete composite articles while providing access to justice for many Albertans facing financial hardships during these unprecedented times.
