The Honourable Richard E. Holland Award

Osgoode Hall Law School is proud to announce the establishment of a new student award in memory of The Honourable Richard E. Holland.

The Honourable Richard E. Holland, Q.C. graduated from Osgoode Hall Law School and was called to the Bar in 1950. He was a talented young lawyer who very quickly became a leading counsel. He received his appointment as Queen's Counsel in 1962 and in 1972, was appointed to the Trial Division of the Supreme Court of Ontario. As a Judge, he was known for being patient and helpful to counsel, as well as gracious to all who appeared before him. His judgments demonstrated an extraordinary ability to sort out facts and apply the law in a fair and equitable manner.

He was a pioneer in the field of Alternate Dispute Resolution in Canada. Upon his retirement from the Bench in 1990, he spent over 10 years enjoying a new professional career as a Mediator and Arbitrator. As head of ADR Chambers, Toronto, he inspired the growth of the company nationally and internationally. He received great pleasure in helping people find mutually agreed and lasting settlement of disputes.
