Extension of LSS Awards Nomination Period

While we have received a great deal of nominations for a few of the LSS Awards, there are a couple for which we have not received many nominations.

As such, the nomination period for the awards has been extended until this Thursday, March 27th.

This is a great opportunity to recognise some of your peers for their awesome contributions to the UVic Law Community. If there is a student in the law school who you think should be considered for one of these awards, please nominate them.

LSS Awards:

The winner of each award is selected by the incoming LSS executives, as well as a number of other student representatives. The selection is based not only on the actual number of nominations a student receives, but on the substantive reasons for those nominations. So, you should explain why you think a certain student should win a certain award. The LSS, while generally representative of the student body, is not always aware of the contributions that a student may have made to the law school or the community. Please take your time to read through the descriptions of the awards available on the website. These awards will be given out at the last Dean’s Social of the year.

Thank you for your help, and we look forward to receiving the nominations!
