Celebrating excellence and recognizing generosity

2021/22 Scholarship & Prize Recipients

Celebrating our student’s success and recognizing the generosity of our many donors is paramount for UNB Law. Unfortunately, due to COVID-19 restrictions, the Faculty cannot host its Annual Academic Awards Night this year. We look forward to returning to this longstanding tradition as soon as possible.

In the meantime, CONGRATULATIONS to all of the 2021/22 scholarship and prize recipients and a THANK YOU to the donors who make these awards possible.
