In Pursuit Of A Better World Through Legal Education

“We are very touched by the affection and respect shown to our father by the many generous donors to this fund in his name. We know he would have been moved too. It is our hope that the fund will support and cultivate new generations of lawyers, jurists and legal scholars who love the law every bit as much as he did.”
Family of the late Mr Joseph Grimberg SC

In line with his deep care and strong belief in education, the SMU School of Law has established the Joe Grimberg Excellence Fund in honour of the late Mr Joseph Grimberg SC.

Made possible by the donations from his family and friends, the fund aims to assist aspiring but financially needy students, and seeks to provide channels for students and SMU to engage in meaningful research in the areas of dispute resolution. 

Mr Grimberg is known for his significant contributions to the legal sector as well as his firm belief and support of legal education. His ideals of leaving a positive impact on the people and communities around him are well felt in SMU, and many of the School of Law’s students have benefitted from his direct engagement and mentorship.

In 2018, proceeds from the fund were put towards the establishment of the Joe Grimberg Excellence Scholarship for undergraduates at the School of Law.
