An Evening with Women Judges

Hey, Second and Third year women law students.

Have your daydreams sometimes involved you in the role of trial or appellate judge? Want to know more about what that would feel like? Or maybe just share a meal and conversation time with a woman who does know?

Then here is an event for you!

The Canadian Chapter of the International Association of Women Judges has chosen a few law schools across Canada to host an event for women law students and women judges. This year, UVic got selected!

The event will be March 1, 5:30-7:30pm, here at UVic.

There will be 4 women judges, food, and a sort of “world café” set up, where you will get a chance move from table to table, to have conversation and ask questions with each of the 4 judges (from a variety of court levels, from both Victoria and Vancouver).

We have spots for 24 2nd or 3rd year women students.

Please sign up ASAP by sending an email to Professor Johnson (rjohnson@uvic.ca). Please include YOUR NAME and YOUR YEAR.

If there is more interest than spots available, we attempt to make sure we have good representation from both years and across our various law school communities.

If you have questions, contact Professor Johnson, at rjohnson@uvic.ca or 250-721-8187.

 

All the best,

Sandy

Housekeeping: mail & clothing

Hey Everyone,

Just a couple housekeeping items to bring to your attention.

The LSS currently is currently storing personal items in the office from previous locker cleanings. Please come by the office if you believe we have something that belongs to you. Any items that have not been claimed by next Tuesday at 2:30pm will be recycled.

Furthermore, the LSS is still receiving mail from the following clubs that are not in existence this year:

  • Law For All
  • South Asian Law Students Association
  • UVic Law Students for Human Rights

If you are interested in reviving one of these clubs in the upcoming school year, please email president.uviclss@gmail.com. If there has been no student response by Tuesday Feb. 2 at 2:30, the LSS will implement its process for managing the mail.

 

All the best,

Sandy
