UBC Law receives $2M gift from family of alumnus

In memory of the late Franklin Lew, wife and son Joan and Derek Lew have made a $2 million gift to the Faculty of Law at UBC. Lew, who graduated from UBC Law in 1961, was a successful businessman and an active member of the community. He passed away in 2006 after a courageous battle with cancer.

The gift, part of UBC’s start an evolution campaign, will create the Franklin Lew Innovation Fund, which will fund research and programming for students and faculty at the law school. The faculty has honoured Lew’s legacy by naming the school’s forum space after him.
