Northern original

b_150_0_16777215_00___images_stories_01-4STUDENTS_Standard_photos_Philip-Bryden1.jpgThunder Bay, Ont., is the hometown of two of Canada’s most distinguished and original legal thinkers: Bora Laskin and Paul Weiler. So perhaps we should not be surprised that what could be characterized as the most radical change to university legal education in Canada in a generation, the “integrated practice curriculum” of Lakehead University’s new JD program, originated in Thunder Bay.

A group of law students from McGill University have launched a campaign to “denounce the conscious and unconscious micro-aggression” they face at the school. The social media campaign, dubbed “#I, too, am McGill,” is intended to shed light on the ways minorities contribute to the success of McGill, and the ongoing struggles those students must deal with at the institution. The campaign is an offshoot of similar U.S.-based initiatives found at Harvard University (#ItooamHarvard) and Oxford University (#ItooamOxford). Both were launched at the beginning of March.
McGill’s campaign was launched on March 27 and has more than 30 student participants. The campaign can be viewed at itooamcgill.tumblr.com.

In March, the Conservative government nixed the call for a federal inquiry into the disproportionate number of missing and murdered indigenous women in Canada, but a second-year University of Victoria law student, whose close childhood friend’s murdered body was found in late February, isn’t willing to give up.

Ab Initio: That 3L moment

b_150_0_16777215_00___images_stories_01-4STUDENTS_Standard_photos_2013rebecca_lockwood_new.jpgI’ve recently found myself reminiscing for a simpler time in life — a period when responsibility wasn’t as great, decisions had less impact, and life just didn’t seem so darn complicated. This nostalgia was prompted by what I’m calling the “3L crisis.”
