It is with great pleasure that we announce the call for nominations for the Common Law Section’s Internal Awards for 2019-2020. Nominations must be sent to Penelope Simons (firstname.lastname@example.org) by February 21, 2020. Please consider nominating your professors and colleagues!
This January, the Common Law Section is welcoming an extraordinary group of visiting professors from within the community and around the world to take part in the law school’s annual January Term tradition. Students and professors alike will have the opportunity to explore timely topics like sports law, engage with international perspectives and learn from an impressive roster of experts offering the latest insight on legal issues.
On November 19th and 21st, 2019, Faculty of Law students had the opportunity to sit in on two federal immigration court hearings. Both hearings were held in the Ian G. Scott courtroom. Students, guest lecturer Laila Demirdache, LLB 1997 and LLL 1998, and professors watched the proceedings behind the soundproof glass wall in the adjoining classroom.
