The Wainwright Fund in Civil Law

About the Wainwright Fund

The Wainwright Fund was established under the terms of the will of the late Arnold Wainwright, Q.C., who bequeathed a generous sum to promote the research and advancement of civil law at McGill University. Me. Wainwright taught civil law at the Faculty of Law of McGill from 1909 until 1934, after which he was named professor emeritus. In 1963, the University presented him with a doctorate of civil law honoris causa in recognition of his invaluable contributions to the legal profession and to scholarship in civil law.

The Faculty of Law of McGill University established the Wainwright Fund, whose capital is guaranteed against inflation. The wide mandate of the Fund allows the Faculty to perpetuate, year after year, the remarkable contributions of this eminent Quebec jurist.
