2014-2015 Year Starts in 3 Weeks

It is time to get back to “studying”. The 2014-2015 school year opens on September 2nd with classes beginning on September 3rd. Elle and Sandy have been preparing for an incredible O-Week for UVic’s new prospects.

There are also a number of exciting improvements coming to the Law School for September. Most importantly, the main floor washrooms are in the process of being renovated and signage in the building will be updated.

The LSS Executive is planning a number of fantastic initiatives for September including a transformed Legal Information Clinic. The coolest crop of Law Students are also pleased to present another annual edition of the best weekend of law school: AbCamp! Stay tuned for additional updates as the year goes along. Remember to contact the LSS if you have any questions or concerns at lss@uvic.ca.

CBABC upcoming events June 2014

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_VBA_golf_tournament_entry_form_2014_original

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 events@cbabc.org or me personally at nathanvankampen@gmail.com and I will connect you with the right person.

Thanks!
