U of T establishes Loveland Chair in Indigenous Law through $2M endowed gift

The University of Toronto will be establishing a new chair in Indigenous law, thanks to a $2M endowed gift from alumni Norman and Gay Loveland. The Loveland Chair in Indigenous Law will advance the law school’s Indigenous law research and education priorities. “The Loveland’s commitment to Indigenous law students and Indigenous scholarship is inspiring,” said U of T Dean Jutta Brunnée. “Further expanding our robust expertise and course offerings is a top academic priority, and with the Loveland’s generous gift we will accelerate our teaching and scholarship in Indigenous law.” The institution also recently received a $500K gift from alumnus Howard Levitt, which was matched by U of T to create a $1M expendable fund to support co- and extra-curricular programming led by the Indigenous Initiatives Office at U of T Law.
