Class of 1992 Bursary
Since we graduated, the cost of tuition at the law school has been steadily increasing to ensure the highest quality legal education. At the same time, there has been more than a 30% real decline in government and other sources of funding. Although such increases have been necessary, the concern is that qualified and capable students from modest socio-economic backgrounds might be precluded, for financial reasons alone, from studying at the law school.
In the lead up to our 25th reunion, I connected with a few of our classmates on the idea of establishing a Class of 1992 endowed student financial aid award at the law school. The result of these discussions was the creation of an endowed bursary, matched in perpetuity by the University of Toronto’s Boundless Promise Matching Program, thereby doubling the impact of the income generated by the bursary. These funds will be distributed to students with demonstrated financial need, based on the law school's detailed financial aid formula.
