It is a holiday tradition that the students, law staff, faculty, and library staff of the Schulich School of Law collect food for the Food Bank. Law School is a competitive place so an added incentive is the friendly (!) contest among the three program sections and the faculty/staff team to donate the most food items. Coordinated by the Law Student Society President Anthony Rosborough and Head of Circulation Anne-Marie White, over three weeks a total of 2,074 food items were donated. The Law Student Society also donated $200 to the Food Bank. Thank you to all those who donated, cajoled, and counted during a busy time of year! (P.S. The Faculty/Staff/Library Team won!)

Law Library Reno 2: Demo Day
Stage 1: Demolition. Our old services area is gone! It was built in 1989 before computerization and did not meet today’s expectation for accessibility. Time for a change.
Law Library under Renovation
On Monday, September 16, 2013 we began our long awaited renovations. We will be creating a new Information Services Centre. Watch our blog as we chronicle the transformation and update you on construction news.

Mini Law School
Always wanted to know what it’s like to go to law school?
Come and find out at a free series of engaging public lectures that will give you a taste of what a legal education is all about. There’s no cost to attend – and better still, no tests to write – just come with a curious ear to listen to fascinating lectures from some of the law school’s most talented faculty.
Lawyers are not usually reputed to be generous souls, but at the Schulich School of Law the Weldon Tradition of Unselfish Public Service is regularly put into practice. Recent visitors to the Law Library would have seen a mountain of groceries in our front lobby. Between Nov. 19th and Dec. 7th law students, faculty and staff gathered Food for FEED NOVA SCOTIA. This is an annual friendly competition, organized by the Law Students’ Society, and hosted in the Sir James Dunn Law Library. The Law School Community together gathered 1,813 items of food. This on top of the Movember campaign, Adopt-a-Family and other charitable causes.
Well done Schulich Law Community! We are looking forward to next year’s rematch!
