Law alumni Henry & Cheryl Kloppenburg give back to community

When choosing a location for their law practice, law alumni Henry and Cheryl Kloppenburg decided to stay true to their Saskatchewan roots. Kloppenburg & Kloppenburg was established in Saskatoon.

Collectively, the Koppenburgs have since practiced law for 75 years, allowing them to personally connect with the community in Saskatoon.

Today, the pair divide their time between their law practice and their extensive philanthropy work.
