Announced at the opening of Allard Hall, the home of the Peter A. Allard School of Law at the University of British Columbia, the CAD $100,000 Allard Prize for International Integrity, conceived of and funded by alumnus Peter A. Allard, Q.C., is intended to recognize an individual, movement or organization that has demonstrated exceptional courage and leadership in combating corruption or protecting human rights, especially through promoting transparency, accountability and the Rule of Law.
