UVic Gets Grant To Expand Environmental Law

The University of Victoria recently announced a huge funding boost from the Quadra Island-based Tula Foundation.

The Tula Foundation agreed to provide $2.75 million to UVic Law, earmarked to support teaching and research in environmental law and sustainability.

“This is a remarkable opportunity for our students,” said Dean Donna Greschner of UVic Law.

“The Tula Foundation’s support since 2006 gives our students the best clinical education in environmental law.”

The agreement will see The Tula Foundation continuing to support UVic’s Environmental Law Centre (ELC) and one of Canada’s leading clinical programs in environmental law. They will also support a new Environmental Law and Sustainability Program.

“With this new agreement, the students will now also have the best program in environmental law and sustainability in the country—bar none,” added Greschner.

“The dedicated professors, lawyers and staff involved with the Environmental Law Centre have taught students how to protect the environment and make a difference in the world.”

The Tula Foundation has been working with UVic since 2006.The new agreement will extend their relationship for another five years.
