The D.B. Goodman Fellowship was established in memory of the late David B. Goodman, Q.C. of Toronto by members of his family, friends and professional associates with the intention of bringing to the law school, on an annual basis, a distinguished member of the practising bar or bench for a few days of teaching and informal discussions with the student body and faculty.

It was the intention of the founders of this fellowship that the Goodman Fellow would, on the one hand, bring to the Faculty the benefit of insights and ideas gained from long experience in the practical application of the law and, on the other hand, himself or herself be refreshed by a short return to the academic legal community.
