Allard School of Law History Project LLM Scholarship
 
The Peter A. Allard School of Law is offering a one-year scholarship of $15,000 to support an LLM student during the 2017-18 academic year to write a thesis on some aspect of British Columbia’s legal history, with preference for a student working on the history of legal education or the legal profession and who intends to use the materials available through the Allard School of Law History Project.
 
Allard School of Law History Project
 
Through the generous donation of Peter A. Allard, Q.C., the Law School established the Allard School of Law History Project to collect, preserve, and communicate its rich history and the history of legal education and the legal profession in British Columbia. Using an online archive to allow broad access, the Project aims to capture something of the experiences of people who passed through the school as students, faculty, or staff, and of those who have made significant contributions to the development of the law in British Columbia.
 
This involves collecting documentary material and an ambitious oral history project. More than 40 interviews are already lodged in the UBC Archives and available on the Allard School of Law History Project website: http://historyproject.allard.ubc.ca/. Work continues to build the documentary and oral histories collection.
 
Allard History Project LLM Scholarship
The Allard School of Law History Project LLM Scholarship is to support a student working on some aspect of British Columbia’s legal history, preferably using the material collected through the Project in his or her LLM thesis, and, by doing so, contributing to the history of the legal profession and/or to the legal history of British Columbia.
To apply, include an expression of interest in the History Project LLM Scholarship in your LLM application (details below). If appropriate, provide details of the proposed use of History Project materials in the thesis proposal.
Please contact Douglas Harris, Nathan T. Nemetz Chair in Legal History (harris@allard.ubc.ca), if you have questions about the Allard School of Law History Project or the LLM Scholarship.
