Hello wonderful UVic Law students,
It’s hard to believe but the end of the year is upon us. And that means it’s time to celebrate!
First, the LSS Awards will be given out at the final Dean’s Social on Thurs. March 31 from 12:30-1:30 in the lounge. There will be pizza!
More meaningfully, after three years in her position as Cultural Support Liaison with the Amicus Team, Karla Point has let us know that she will be retiring, at the end of April, to spend more time with her family and grandchildren. Karla holds her JD from UVicLaw and it was an extraordinary gift to our community that she took up the position of Cultural Support Liaison in September 2013. Since then she has played a significant role in the lives of all UVicLaw students, in Legal Process, at Aboriginal Cultural Awareness Camp, with the Kawaskhimon Moot, with open door office hours, at feasts, in work with the Amicus Team, at the graduation ceremony for Indigenous students, organizing sweat lodges, teaching cedar bark weaving, and so much more. Her caring, wise, gentle counsel, infectious laugh, and energy will be missed in the Fraser Building for years to come!
Please join ILSA and the LSS in honouring Karla, this Thursday at 1:30 in the student lounge after the LSS Awards.
All the best,
