YorkU announces $1.2M award created by donations from law firm, alumni


Students in York University’s Osgoode Hall Law School will soon benefit from a new $1.2M Davies Fellow Award that has been established with funds from Davies Ward Phillips & Vineberg LLP and Osgoode alumni. The award will support the creation of a bursary for a first-year JD student who has demonstrated financial need. “We count among our lawyers at Davies, individuals who have overcome obstacles to achieve excellence in the profession, and we recognize that we have an opportunity to expand access to a legal education to students from equity-deserving groups,” says Osgoode alumna and Davies senior partner Patricia Olasker.
