Law schools are no exception. Even at 60, Queen's Law is continuing to adapt to the times, with new classroom technologies and an increasingly diverse student body. Ensuring that our legal profession reflects the Canadian population is a goal we're proud to support. 

Supporting that goal means supporting our students, which leads to another new innovation for our school. QL60 is a fundraising campaign unlike any we’ve had before; launched at Homecoming 2017 and only running to May 2018.

For a few short months, we're asking our alumni to consider supporting our bursary programs, essential to keeping our doors open to all promising future leaders in law. Whether contributing to our new Faculty of Law bursary via http://givetoqueens.ca/QL60 or through an existing bursary fund or class gift, every dollar counts toward our ultimate goal of making a Queen's Law education accessible.

It's impossible to launch such a campaign without acknowledging the remarkable generosity of our alumni over the past year. From the outpouring of generosity that allowed us to create our Sigurdson Professorship in Law, to the ongoing thoughtfulness of alumni who include us in their planned giving, through every donor on our Honor Roll in our latest issue of Supporting Excellence – every one of these gestures is valued and appreciated.

We look forward to sharing exciting news at Celebrate Queen's Law in May about the success of this campaign, and our shared triumph in ensuring that Queen's Law remains a school that supports excellence and leadership in all our students.
