Cameron Environmental Law Award (Hugh Forbes Cameron and Jean Robertson Cameron)

This award was created in honour of Hugh Forbes Cameron and Jean Robertson Cameron (née Kydd) of Edinburgh, Scotland. Hugh was a lawyer, educated at Cambridge University in England, and Jean latterly became an accomplished botanist. Both of them had a tremendous appreciation of the landscape, flora and fauna of the Scottish highlands, and concern for their conservation. Their generosity provided their children and grandchildren with the finances to pursue post-secondary education. Their daughter immigrated to Canada in 1976 and in 2010 their grandson graduated from the University of Victoria, near which some of the family now live. The family wishes to honour them by supporting students without such financial advantage to study the increasingly vital area of environmental law.
