The Res Ipsa Loquitur Bursary

Established by Professor Jim MacIntyre, a Queen's faculty member from 1959 to 1964, to honour the remembrance of the Res Ipsa Loquitur Boarding House which played a significant role in the lives of many law students and faculty members during the 1960's.

I started my law teaching career at Queen's in 1959, the 3rd year that it had started. The "Res Ipsa" Boarding House housed several law students and was the social centre for faculty and students for parties, general mixing and so on. There was a lot of 'bonding' between faculty and students in those early years of small classes. The house is gone, but I wanted that period remembered.
