Osgoode Society one of 20 recipients of LFO Catalyst grants!
Thank you so much to the Law Foundation of Ontario for awarding a three-year Catalyst grant to the Osgoode Society for Canadian Legal History! The core funding we receive will go to support our work recording oral histories, and scholarly research and publishing by graduate students, historians, lawyers, judges, and other scholars interested in the legal past(s) of our country.
It is an honour to be selected, and particularly so in the company of such admirable and inspiring organizations.
The Law Foundation has helped fund our work for a number of years, and we are delighted that they continue to recognize the Osgoode Society's contribution to the critical understanding of law as a profound force in our society, one which is complicated, always changing and contested, and which should never be assumed or taken for granted. We are grateful that the Foundation appreciates the importance of history in fostering a commitment to access to justice. Thank you again, LFO!
