UVic Indigenous law unit receives $1.2M to enhance influence

The University of Victoria’s Indigenous Law Research Unit has received funding from the Law Foundation of British Columbia. The $1.2M grant will provide core funding for the research unit for three years in addition to enhancing staffing and operations and exploring new relationships with community partners. The funds will also support Indigenous law workshops, educational offerings, articling positions, and an immersive model of community-based Indigenous legal education. “[The unit’s] work requires patient, careful dedication that is measured in years, not months. It needs strong and lasting financial support to succeed, and we are thankful to be invited to support them in their mission,” said Law Foundation Lindsay LeBlanc.
