Dr. Paul D. K. Fraser is an alumnus of The University of Winnipeg (BA 61) and accomplished Canadian lawyer.

After graduating from UWinnipeg, Fraser completed a Bachelor of Laws at the University of British Columbia in 1986. He has extensive experience in both civil and criminal matters and is a senior partner with the Vancouver law firm, Fraser Milner Casgrain.

Fraser, who has also served on the UWinnipeg Foundation Board of Directors, returned to his alma mater to receive an Honorary Doctorate of Laws in 1986. The honour was in recognition of his professional dedication to the betterment of the country and his commitment to promoting understanding and good relations between Canada and other nations.
