Clint Ford Memorial Bursary
Established in memory of Clint Ford by his classmates to benefit students at his alma mater. A graduate of the Class of 1982, Clint went to practice civil litigation in Calgary. An outstanding litigator, particularly in a trial setting requiring strong nerves and an agile mind, has been confirmed by many people that worked with him. A former work colleague of Clint’s wrote a terrific tribute to Clint published in the Advocate, a legal publication in British Columbia (Clint was also a member of the BC Bar). Please refer to page 575 of the following link: http://www.the-advocate.ca/emag/issues/2018/july/
Clint is fondly remembered for his fun-loving nature. He saw the absurdity about many things in life and had the sense of humour to make it all seem funny. On occasion (which means often), he expressed his disdain for all things east of the Manitoba/Ontario border. The one exception though was that he truly loved and was proud to be a graduate of our Law School.
A bursary has been established in Clint’s memory to benefit a student in any year of the JD program on the basis of financial need. Preference will be given to students from one of the four western Canadian provinces. Although not required, the student one day might also treasure the law degree but share Clint’s disdain for the city and province in which the degree was obtained. Clint would be very happy with this result. The impact of the gift will be doubled, as the University of Toronto will match the gift through its Boundless Promise Matching. The income from the total amount raised will be used in future years for the bursary to the deserving student.
