The Samworth Advocacy Prize

As past President of The Advocates' Society, I was given a gift for my years of service on the Board and Executive.

Usually the gift is something personal; a painting or in one case, a signed baseball. I asked to have my gift money put into an award for Excellence in Advocacy at Queen's. I enhanced the award with my own money and my firm Dutton Brock contributed. As Queen's made a lasting and important impression on me, I wanted to return that in some way.

I hope the recipient will remember their years at Queen's as fondly as I have. As I am a litigator, I wanted the award to encourage and support good advocacy in keeping with my years at The Advocates' Society.
