Western law students and faculty members who specialize in mining law and finance will benefit from a significant gift by Stephen Dattels, LLB’72.
A contribution of $1.525 million by Dattels builds on previous donations to Western Law that support the January Term course in mining law and finance and the Stephen Dattels Chair in Corporate Finance Law.
“Stephen Dattels’ generous commitment will deepen the school’s expertise in the important field of mining law and support future mining law leaders,” said W. Iain Scott, dean of Western Law.
A seasoned senior mining executive, Dattels was a key executive in the formative years of Barrick Gold Corporation. He now serves as Executive Co-Chairman and CEO of both Polo Resources Limited and West African Minerals Corporation, both of which are listed on The London Stock Exchange.
The new donation will support the Stephen Dattels Visiting Pre-eminent Speakers in Mining Law and Finance Series and the Stephen Dattels January Term Fellowship in Mining Law and Finance.
“I strongly believe in the importance of education with a functional focus,” said Stephen Dattels. “I hope this gift will help ensure Western Law graduates are well prepared to excel and become leading international lawyers in mining law.”
