Mr. Allard was a generous philanthropist and esteemed alumnus whose pursuit of advancing legal education and justice helped transform UBC. We join President Santa J. Ono in sharing our sincere condolences with Peter’s family.

His vision enriched the Peter A. Allard School of Law’s worldwide reputation for student engagement, academic excellence and leading research.
In his own words, “My hope is that the law school will become a beacon for justice, and the promotion of human rights and the Rule of Law, around the world.”
