The Allard Prize is administered by the University of British Columbia Faculty of Law at Allard Hall. The UBC Faculty of Law has a deep and longstanding history of advancing human rights. Faculty members have been pioneers in articulating and supporting women’s human rights, the rights of First Nations and indigenous communities, and the rights of victims of crime. Faculty scholarship stands at the forefront of new thinking on crimes of corporate complicity, human trafficking, and economic and social rights. Faculty members have held respected positions as UN Rapporteurs and judges, and conducted judicial training at the national and international levels. Currently housed within the Faculty of Law are programs which invite direct student engagement in advancing human rights, including The Innocence Project, the First Nations Legal Clinic, and the Law Students Legal Advice Program. Scholarships support student participation in the greater community – locally, nationally, and globally.
