Together, we will prepare students for the legal marketplace of the future
Uniquely positioned in a city and province that are world leaders in the resource and energy sector, UCalgary's Faculty of Law embraces the integral role it plays in Canada’s energy capital.
Your support will propel the faculty — already integral to the national energy sector — to become a global destination for the study of natural resources, energy and environmental law, the Canadian leader in lawyering skills development, and Western Canada’s standard of excellence for Juris Doctor programs.
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. The Al Lucas Scholarship in Energy and Environmental Law will support a student in the Juris Doctor program whose focus of practice and study is energy and environmental law.
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.
