On February 4, 2016, the Faculty of Law celebrated the official opening of the Borden Ladner Gervais (BLG) Wing, home to four modern, renovated classrooms. The new wing in Fauteux Hall is a testament to the partnership between uOttawa Law and BLG; the firm’s generous donations have allowed for physical renovations to our Faculty, and have helped our students through bursaries. Many uOttawa Law students have been able to gain professional knowledge in their field as articling students at BLG. The official opening was an opportunity for uOttawa Law to thank BLG for their commitment to the school. We look forward to a continued partnership!
