Clark Wilson donates $600,000 to the building project

Joan Arthur Clark and Alexander Wilson were childhood friends from Ontario who began practicing law in Vancouver in 1911. After helping to establish the 72nd Seaforth Highlands of Canada, and leading their regiment through several pivotal engagements during World War I, General Clark and Brigadier Wilson returned to Vancouver to continue their, at the time, separate legal practices.

Following years of operation from adjoining offices, Clark & Maguire and Wilson & White merged in 1952. Today, Clark Wilson LLP is one of British Columbia’s leading law firms. As a prominent member of the province’s business community, the firm is also actively involved in numerous professional, charitable and industry organizations. With many successful alumni among their ranks, the firm is a long-time supporter of the University of British Columbia and the law school.

The Clark Wilson Classroom was dedicated to Clark Wilson LLP, in recognition of their generous support during the construction of the new law building.
