On February 4, the Faculty of Law celebrated the official opening of the Borden Ladner Gervais (BLG) Wing of Fauteux Hall, home to four modern, renovated classrooms.  The new wing is a testament to the partnership between the uOttawa Faculty of Law and BLG — the firm’s generous donations have allowed for renovations to Fauteux and have provided scholarships for students. Many uOttawa law students have been able to gain experience in their field by articling at BLG. The official opening was an opportunity for the Faculty to thank BLG for its commitment.
