Chief Herald of Canada Grants Coat of Arms

On October 1, 1992 the Chief Herald of Canada granted UBC's law school a Coat of Arms: FIAT JUSTITIA, RUAT COELUM, which means "let justice be done though the heavens fall." The law school's founding Dean, George Curtis established FIAT JUSTITIA, RUAT COELUM as the school's motto. This passionate belief in the power of law to make a better world has fueled more than seventy years of progress at the law school.
