$2-million gift creates business law chair at uSask

October 29, 2012

John and Bill Estey, sons of the late Willard "Bud" Estey, former Supreme Court of Canada Justice, have donated $2 million to the University of Saskatchewan's College of Law to establish the Estey Chair in Business Law. The chair is intended to attract outstanding scholars in the area of business law. Chairholders will be expected to teach business law courses at the college, conduct world-class research in their field, and share their expertise and engage in outreach activities with the wider legal community. By founding the chair, it is the benefactors' hope that the initiative will help position uSask's law school as one of Canada's leading institutions in business law. The gift is the largest-ever private donation to the College of Law. uSask News Release
