Exam season in 3L

b_150_0_16777215_00___images_stories_01-4STUDENTS_Standard_photos_2013rebecca_lockwood_new.jpgDecember is a strange month for students.

I was compelled to ask him: “Haven’t your parents taught you proper technology etiquette?” Before he could answer, I received an e-mail while sitting at my desk. While he was talking with me, I looked to my screen and began reading the e-mail.

The benefits of giving back

b_150_0_16777215_00___images_stories_01-CANADIANLawyer_Columnists_lindsay_scott.jpgDecember brings to my mind plenty of food, time for family and friends, and the season of giving.
