Our Commitment to the Environment

With the September 2007 issue of Nexus, the U of T Faculty of Law adopted a commitment to do what it can to protect the environment by using natural resources responsibly. We are committed to implementing policies that will facilitate the meaningful conservation of ancient and endangered forests globally and ensure that we are not contributing to the destruction of these irreplaceable natural treasures.

Nexus began as an informative newsletter for alumni, first published in 1983. Over the years, as the Faculty grew, Nexus expanded, publishing more feature articles and news for its wider community, including students, faculty and visiting professors, and other friends of the law school.

Today, Nexus has evolved into a colourful, glossy magazine with a comprehensive mandate: to capture the wide range of activities — academic scholarship, student curricular and extracurricular programs, alumni events — that take place throughout the year at the law school. Nexus often explores the key legal issues of the day.
