Peter Freeman, QC, Bursary for Indigenous Students in Law

Supporting Excellence

In honour of Peter Freeman, QC, and his many contributions to the legal profession in Alberta and his lifelong dedication to legal education, the Law Society of Alberta has established the Peter Freeman, QC, Bursary for Indigenous Students in Law.

The bursary is an endowment which will fund an annual award to an indigenous student, based on academic standing and financial need, at each of the Alberta law faculties.

This award was created in 2001 by the Law Society of Alberta to honour Peter Freeman, QC, who served as the Law Society’s Executive Director from 1989 until his retirement in 2001.

Applications should be provided to the Student Awards Office, Faculty of Law at either the University of Calgary or the University of Alberta by May 1.
