Faculty of Law publishes commemorative book to celebrate 50th anniversary
The University of Windsor Faculty of Law welcomed its first class in 1968; a small group of students at Canada’s newest law school. 50 years later, Windsor Law has earned distinction among law schools for its emphases on access to justice, community service, clinical and experiential learning, and transnational law. It is home to over 7,000 alumni who have become leaders in the legal profession across Canada and around the world.
To celebrate this milestone, Windsor Law has partnered with local publisher, Biblioasis, to create a commemorative book in honour of the occasion, Bridging the Law, Fifty Years of Windsor Law.
Bridging the Law, Fifty Years of Windsor Law commemorates 50 years of teaching, research advocacy and service at the University of Windsor’s Faculty of Law.
This unique celebratory publication is a collection of short articles and profiles based on essential themes that characterize Windsor Law’s history and current values: people-centred, community engaged, justice-seeking, dynamic and inclusive.
“Windsor was meant to be a different kind of law school from the start,” said Dean of Law, Christopher Waters. “From our modest beginnings -with a few dozen students in 1968- to where we are today, with over 7,000 graduates, we’ve changed in size and reach. But we remain the ‘people’s law school’ that we started off as 50 years ago. This book tells that story.”
Contributors include professional authors, journalists and past and present Windsor Law faculty, staff and alumni.
The law school is hosting a gala Thursday, September 20, 2018 at Caesars Windsor to celebrate this milestone; over 400 alums have confirmed attendance.
Whether you are part of Windsor Law’s 50-year history, or a current law student who will shape the next 50 years, we invite you to join us as we celebrate this significant milestone and celebrate the successes of our law school, alumni, students, faculty, librarians, clinicians and staff.
