Torys has teamed up with Western Law to help provide opportunities for students struggling financially due to COVID-19.
The Torys LLP Student Support Bursary was led by current Torys partners and Western alum—Gillian Dingle, Adrienne DiPaolo, Mitch Frazer and Janan Paskaran—and totals $400,000.
Gillian, Adrienne, Mitch and Janan, with support from other Western Law alum at Torys, raised $100,000, which was then matched by the firm. That $200,000 was then matched by Western Law.
“As alumni and as a firm, we are thrilled to partner with Western Law to invest in students and help ease some of the additional uncertainty and stress they are facing in the pandemic,” Adrienne said.
