High school students learn the LAWS
Toronto high school graduate Meijuan Lin gained new perspective on the law during a month-long placement at the LCO this summer as part of Law in Action Within Schools (LAWS). A partnership between the University of Toronto Faculty of Law (and now, Osgoode Hall Law School) and the Toronto District School Board, LAWS helps high school students gain entry to post-secondary studies, and become informed and engaged citizens through exposure to legal environments.
“The experience helped to broaden my view of the world,” says Lin of her tenure at the LCO. It also helped to open the door to new ways of thinking in preparation for her admission this fall to the University of Waterloo.
Interning through Pro Bono Students Canada
September also marked a new beginning for Osgoode’s Stephen Hsia and U of T law student Marianne Salih, participants in Pro Bono Students Canada’s academic year-long internship program through the two law schools. Hsia and Salih will spend up to five hours a week working on the LCO’s law reform files and learning first-hand the value of public service.
