In Torys Hall, the beautiful main reading room of the renovated Bora Laskin Law Library, students can pore over cases together at the long tables or read solo in armchairs next to the fireplace. The library is attached to the new Jackman Law Building, which opened in 2016 and won a Canadian Architect Magazine Award of Excellence for design. Hal Jackman (BA 1953 VIC,
LLB 1956) donated $11 million to support the new building. Some 600 other alumni and friends also contributed to the project.
