Prof Claire Young Recognized for her Commitment to UBC Law
Professor Claire Young
Professor Claire Young is the 2011 recipient of the Don MacDougall Faculty Scholar Award. This is a $5,000 research grant awarded each year to a deserving faculty member for his or her outstanding contributions to the Faculty of Law at UBC.
Generously supported by the law firm Taylor Jordan Chafetz, the Faculty Scholar Award recognizes those who consistently give more than their fair share of time and energy to the Faculty, especially in those aspects of their activity that bring no material reward. Professor Young's contributions to the Faculty of Law over the years have been extraordinary. She has served in a range of important roles, including taking on leadership of various law school committees, representing the Faculty at key university committees, and serving as Associate Dean for Academic Affairs. The Faculty congratulates Professor Young on this well-deserved recognition for her years of dedicated service to the Faculty of Law.
According to the terms of the gift from Taylor Jordan Chafetz, the Faculty Scholar Award is made in the name of an emeritus faculty member whose career at UBC exemplifies the purposes of the Award, rotating to a new Emeritus Faculty member every two years. The awards are made in the name of Professor Emeritus Donald MacDougall. Professor MacDougall joined UBC Law as a visiting faculty member in 1964, received a permanent appointment at UBC in 1966, was promoted to Professor in 1968, and took Emeritus status in 1999.
