Law society at UNB petitions university to remove Ludlow name from building

October 15, 2019

The University of New Brunswick’s Law Students’ Society has passed a resolution asking the institution to remove the name of a historical figure who is alleged to have had ties with slavery and settler colonial policies from UNB’s faculty of law building. Located on the Fredericton campus, Ludlow Hall is named after George Duncan Ludlow, the province’s first chief justice who also supported slavery and a precursor for the residential school system for Indigenous children. In an email statement to CBC News, UNB president and vice-chancellor Paul Mazerolle confirmed the university has received the society's request. CBC (NB)
