Two graduate students currently engaged in doctoral studies at the Faculty of Law, Siobhán Airey and Pierre Cloutier de Repentigny, were recently profiled in the Ottawa Citizen. The article highlights how their work, and valuable support from the Faculty of Law, has brought them to the front lines of social justice.
The article also describes the nurturing environment at the Faculty of Law, as well as some of the resources graduate students can access: “With a fully engaged support staff ready to help students navigate the complexities of university life, and with 100 full-time professors of common and civil law available to share their expertise and viewpoints with the 186 graduate students currently registered, […] the faculty environment is geared for success. The faculty even has its own on-campus legal clinics and a fully functional courtroom where students can listen to real cases being heard. Having the Supreme Court of Canada, federal government departments and certain NGO offices nearby also provides unique access to a variety of law-related internship and practicum opportunities.”
