TRU Law Hits Major Milestones

Written on Monday, June 16th, 2014

BC's newest law school, the Thompson Rivers Faculty of Law, had two big reasons to celebrate this past weekend.

As the TRU Society of Law Students posted on Facebook:

"It is a milestone weekend here at TRU Law. Yesterday we celebrated the grand opening of our new law building. Today we celebrate the convocation of our inaugural grad class. Thanks Class of 2014 - you paved the way for every future student at TRU Law. ‪#‎trulaw ‪#‎trulawgrad2014".

Thompson Rivers Law first opened its doors in September 2011, and less than three years later, 71 of the 75 original law students have now graduated.

According to CFCJ TV in Kamloops, the interim Dean of Law Anne Pappa said, "It's something you dream about at the start of the endeavour, and to actually have it here is almost magical, and I pinch myself every now and again because it is actually here. When you start anything, you have these ideas of what the outcome will be. The outcome for this one has been wonderful and even more than what we anticipated and expected".

Honorary Doctor of Law degrees were given to former Chief Justice Lance Finch and former Premier Gordon Campbell at the convocation ceremony.

The other major milestone for TRU Law was the grand opening of their completely revitalized faculty building, Old Main. According to the government's press release, the $20.2-million project took three years to complete, and incorporates locally harvested beetle-killed pine and other green features such as passive solar energy collection.

TRU president Alan Shaver noted, “This re-invention of Old Main is an important expression of TRU’s vision for the future. TRU’s first graduating class of law students and each subsequent graduate will carry a tremendous sense of this place with them as they move forward with their careers".

Big congratulations to TRU Law and its first class of graduates!
