The Bruce C. McDonald Award

Established by friends, colleagues and co-workers in memory of Bruce C. McDonald, (Law '63).

Bruce Carr McDonald was born and raised as the youngest of a family of five in Roland, a small town named after his great-uncle in rural Manitoba. He obtained his B.A. from the University of Manitoba, his LLB from Queen's University (where he was a gold medalist), and his Masters and Doctorate degrees in Law from the University of Michigan (Ann Arbour). He was a member of the Law Faculty of Queen's from 1964 to 1970 before joining the Toronto office of Lang Michener where he was a senior partner.

Bruce McDonald had expertise in a wide variety of areas of law, but his great love was competition law. He taught evidence, torts, and competition law while he was at Queen's and later taught competition law at York University. On his death in 1991, was recognized as one of the leading authorities in competition law.

Bruce McDonald was always very passionate about education and the law and he was proud of his connection to Queen's University. Upon his death, his family was approached by many friends and colleagues who wanted to contribute something in his honour. This award was an obvious choice.
