Enduring throughout adversity

May 13, 2020 — 
In 1914, the same year the world went to war, the Manitoba Law School was established by forward-thinking, concerned advocates in H.A. Robson and E.K. Williams who made the education of future lawyers their top priority. Since then, the Faculty of Law has continued to build on this rich tradition. In the face of adverse events like today's pandemic, this faculty community has always found a way to carry on.
