Law Library Study Room Bookings

A message to you from Michael Lines and the Law Library Staff:

As we enter the last weeks of term, we wish students all the best for exams, papers, and assignments. We hope to offer law students the support and study environment that is needed at this time. and alert all library users to the following update:

For the period of March 23 through end of day, Sunday April 19, group study room access in the law library is limited to law students. Rooms may be booked at the front desk of the law library.
We trust all law library users will respect the increased need for quiet study at this time.

Many thanks and happy studying.

You are invited to the LSS Annual General Meeting. It will occur on Thursday March 19th at 12pm. At least one quarter of all LSS members must be in attendance, in order to comply with the Society’s bylaws. Lunch will be provided. The AGM will also serve as the forum for the LSS Presidential Candidate speeches. I hope you can all attend and witness statutory compliance in action.

Legal Who Information Form

“Dear students, the Legal Who is a booklet created every year that has the names and contact info of each UVic law student and the faculty. It is free for every student to pick up later in the year, and includes club contact information as well as information for each UVic LSS member. Please fill in your relevant contact information to the form below by November 30, 2014. Only names and year of law school are required, however please do include your email and phone number if you are willing as this will make the Legal Who more effective for everyone involved. Thank you.”

Movember Competition

UVic has been challenged by the other British Columbia Law Schools to raise funds for prostate cancer. Donations help improve the lives of men by going towards prostate cancer, testicular cancer and mental health issues. This year, 3L John Bullock is spearheading our efforts. You can find the donation page here! Although there is a “competition”, remember that everyone wins when health issues are addressed. I look forward to the mo’s on campus this month!
