In Brief


Update from the Law Foundation of BC

New Law Foundation website

The Law Foundation has updated and redesigned its website. The goal of the redesign was to further meet the needs of grantees and the public. This new site makes information about the Foundation accessible, provides current information about grant cycles, and highlights Law Foundation-funded groups. It is a key tool in the Law Foundation’s work, which is based on its mission statement: To advance and promote a just society governed by the rule of law, through leadership, innovation and collaboration.
