The faculty of law has been renamed the Lincoln Alexander School of Law at Ryerson University.
A brilliant lawyer and distinguished public servant, Lincoln Alexander (1922-2012) played a key role in promoting multiculturalism, education and youth leadership.
“Throughout his career, Mr. Alexander demonstrated a longstanding commitment to championing education and youth initiatives and advancing racial equality,” said Ryerson University President Mohamed Lachemi at the law school’s year-end celebration in May. “Today’s announcement is a very fitting testament to those commitments and we hope that our students will similarly serve and support others in their future careers holding true to their values with the same fervor that he did.”
The law school’s rigorous curriculum features a collaborative co-teaching model with faculty and practitioners from a range of backgrounds and perspectives. Many of the faculty are members of equity-deserving groups – making it among the most diverse law schools in the country.
