Richard Lewis Evans was a professor at Dalhousie Law School between 1975–2008 and was the chief architect of the school's application for the 1998 Emil Gumpert Award for Excellence in the Teaching of Trial Advocacy. He graduated from Osgoode Hall, Toronto, in 1970 and came to Dalhousie in 1975 as the executive director of Dalhousie Legal Aid Service (DLAS), a position he held until 1979, and again between 1987-1989 and 1991-1995. He was also a long-serving member of the DLAS Board of Trustees. He created and taught Dalhousie's first Clinical Course in Criminal Law (known as the "criminal clinic") and co-authored the 1985 Christie-Evans-Johnson report. In 2003 he received the Pottier Award for outstanding contributions to Dalhousie Legal Aid. Evans also served on Oxfam Canada's National Board from 1999-2010 and as chair of Oxfam Internationals Board from 2002-2007.
