It is that time again to submit your application for the E.M. Culliton Scholarship Endowment! In 2015 Colton Fehr of Regina was awarded $15,000 to pursue his studies at the University of Toronto’s College of Law, with the hope of one day teaching in the field of criminal law. If you are interested in earning scholarship money for your pursuit in criminal law at the graduate level, why not apply? Up to two scholarships are available.
The criteria for the selection of the recipients of the annual scholarship are as follows:
- Must be a graduating student of the College of Law, University of Saskatchewan or a resident practicing member of The Law Society of Saskatchewan for the pursuit of graduate studies in criminal law at a recognized institution.
- Selection is based on the academic record and research potential of the candidates, service to the practice of law in Saskatchewan, and such other guidelines as from time to time may be determined appropriate by the committee.
Former Chief Justice E.M. Culliton served as a Justice of the Court of Appeal from 1951 to 1962, and then became Chief Justice for the period of 1962 to 1981. Chief Justice Culliton was noted for his firm leadership style on the bench. He passed away in March 1991 at the age of 84. The scholarship endowment fund was set up in perpetuity as a tribute to his legacy. Learn more about his contributions to the province at SaskLawCourts.ca.
