The Law School Celebrates its 50th Anniversary

Pictured above are the first five deans of the law school, joining together to commemorate its 50th year. From left to right: George F. Curtis (1945–1971); Kenneth M. Lysyk (1976–1982), C. Lynn Smith (1991-1997), Albert J. McClean (1971–1976), and Peter T. Burns (1982–1991).

The 50th anniversary of the law school at UBC inspired renewed focus on both its past and its future. Published to celebrate this important milestone, Law School: The Story of Legal Education in British Columbia, written by W. Wesley Pue, offers a richly detailed account of the history of legal education in British Columbia.
