When doctoral student Kyle Kirkup began his studies at U of T’s Faculty of Law in 2012, preparations were underway to construct the new Jackman Law Building.

Now, nearing completion of his thesis, Kirkup reflects on his visit to the Bora Laskin Law Library’s new reading room. “You might say we have both been under construction for the past four years.”

Kirkup describes the library as a spectacular space that bridges the rich history of the faculty and its bright future. He says, “With high ceilings and large windows overlooking Philosopher’s Walk, the space will be the institutional heart of the Faculty of Law for generations to come.”

The future law professor studies the relationship between LGBTQ communities and contemporary practices of the criminal law. Read about his work on his portfolio site.
