uWindsor offered $15 million to move law faculty downtown

December 4, 2013

Windsor’s city council has approved a $15-million grant to the University of Windsor to move its Faculty of Law downtown. uWindsor President Alan Wildeman said that if the plan moves forward, close to 700 law faculty students and staff would make the move into the downtown, “bringing the legal education experience closer to the courts and Windsor’s legal community.” Wildeman added that uWindsor will now focus its attention on leveraging other sources of funding. The law faculty move would expand an existing downtown campus project, which will see 3 heritage buildings renovated and expanded to accommodate 2,000 students and faculty. Windsor Star
