In Memoriam

Some of the greatest minds in Canadian legal history have passed through the doors of the Manitoba Law School, known today as Robson Hall, Faculty of Law at the University of Manitoba. Many quietly went about the business of defending human rights, fighting for equality and freedom from oppression. The legal community holds their memories dear and celebrates their contributions to helping others. We wish to pay tribute to Manitoba Law School and Faculty of Law, University of Manitoba Alumni who have gone before us, leaving incredible legacies for us to remember and strive to do them proud.
