Thanks to incredible alumni support, the Law Building Campaign is well on its way to making a new, state-of-art building a reality for future law students. At an exciting event on November 29, 2011, Dean Mayo Moran publicly launched the campaign, which had raised $21 million to date in private gifts, together with $18 million received from the University of Toronto.

As at November 2012, $32.5 million in private fundraising has been raised, thanks to an extraordinary lead gift of $10-million from the Hon. Hal Jackman. This gift is in addition to Jackman’s $1-million gift at the time of the launch and names the new structure the Jackman Law Building.

“Nothing is as important to the future of this incredible institution as physical renewal,” says Moran. “We are so grateful for the extraordinary generosity of the law firms and individuals who came forward so early in the campaign to support our aspirations.”

Clay Horner, LLB 1983, and Tom Rahilly, LLB 1969, were happy to accept Moran’s invitation to co-chair the campaign.  “The Faculty of Law was a very important educational experience for me. I welcomed a chance to help the law school,” says Rahilly. “I hope that we can persuade our alumni and friends of the great value of the school as a centre of excellence in a rapidly changing and expanding world.”
