First Farris Award at UBC Okanagan Goes to Daniel McMann

Farris is pleased to announce the first recipient of the new Farris, Vaughan, Wills & Murphy LLP Graduate Award is UBC Okanagan student, Daniel McMann. The award provides a $1,000 award to a student graduating from UBC Okanagan’s Irving K. Barber School of Arts and Sciences who has taken courses in law and shows great promise in that field. McMann received a Bachelor of Arts degree from UBC Okanagan in June.

Created by Farris’ Kelowna Managing Partner Dominic Petraroia and Partner Ross Langford—both of whom have law degrees from UBC—the award is funded by a $20,000 endowment, donated over five years, that will generate the annual award. The Farris Award is representative of the firm’s commitment to “help promising students pursue careers in such an exciting, rewarding and important field,” says Langford. The award is intended to help “ease the financial burden of students as they move on to law school,” says Petraroia.

On behalf of all the Partners at Farris, we wish to extend our sincere congratulations to Daniel McMann.
