Spring Convocation 2022 News Archive
May 19, 2022 —
On Wednesday, June 8, 2022 at 9:30 a.m., David Milgaard was to have taken the stage beside his long-time friend, David Asper, Q.C., at the University of Manitoba’s Convocation ceremony. Together, they were to receive honorary Doctor of Laws degrees that had been announced in January, 2020, but due to the pandemic, could not be officially awarded. The moment would have honored their respective remarkable lifetime achievements. Instead, Asper, former Acting Dean of the Faculty of Law (2020-2021), will stand alone on the stage facing Class of 2022 Juris Doctor students, accept his own - plus his friend’s award posthumously, and pass on Milgaard’s legacy of hope for the wrongfully convicted, to the next generation of lawyers.
