We have received this correspondence from the Minister of Justice, The Honourable Peter MacKay in response to our call for a National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women. The original letter requesting a National Inquiry as signed by Yianni Pappas-Acreman on behalf of the LSS is here: LSS Call for Inquiry. Contact the LSS if you have any questions or concerns.

The BC Branch of the Canadian Bar Association is putting on an event in the next few weeks that may interest law students and offer opportunities to network and volunteer:
The CBABC’s 18th annual Golf Tournament:
This year it is on July 16 at the University Golf Course (on the grounds of UBC). I’ve attached the registration form as it has details about the venue and timing.
CBABC is looking for volunteers to assist with various tasks such as registration (from about 10:30 am – 1:15 pm), activities on certain holes such as the hole-in-one and “game” holes (approximately 12:45 – 5:30 pm), and then the evening/dinner activities like silent auction and 50/50 ticket sales. Volunteers don’t have to commit to the entire day; simply let us know what timing works. It’s a really fun day, and a great chance to network with some really amazing people.
If you are interested in volunteering, you can contact email@example.com or me personally at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will connect you with the right person.
