Prof Glenn Gallins, Law Centre Director, awarded the CBA's Georges A. Goyer, QC Memorial Award

Our own Glenn Gallins, Director of the Law Centre Clinical Law Program, has been awarded the Georges A Goyer, QC Memorial Award for Distinguished Service. The award recognizes exceptional contributions and/or achievements by any resident of British Columbia to the legal profession in British Columbia, to jurisprudence in British Columbia or Canada, to the law or development of the law in British Columbia, or a significant law-related benefit to the residents of British Columbia.

Over many years, the Law Centre has provided a fabulous experience for students and an enormous contribution to people who otherwise would not be able to afford legal services. Glenn Gallins has been at the core of that contribution. The award is richly deserved.

Previous recipients include, among many other distinguished contributors, UVic Law’s Prof Jerry McHale and Emeritus Professor Donovan Waters.
