Burnaby Mountain’s Law students were fortunate enough to be a part of the Canadian Bar Association’s “Law Week” festivities this past Wendesday, attending Studio 700 at CBC Studios where they had the opportunity to interview the top chief justices including Chief Justice Robert Bauman of the Court of Appeal, Chief Justice Christopher Hinkson of the Supreme Court, and Chief Judge Thomas Crabtree of the Provincial Court. The screening of the forum will be available on the the Canadian Bar Association’s (BC division) website within the next few weeks.
Additionally, four of Law students (Panthea Pourmalek, Nathan Howes, Sabrina Mah and Miranda Collette) are competing at the Barry Sullivan Public Speaking Contest hosted by the Canadian Barr Association on April 5, 2016 at the Vancouver Art Gallery. This year’s theme is The Law in Cyberspace – The Right to Be Forgotten vs. The Public’s Right to Know: Where should the line be drawn? Good luck to all of you as we attempt to repeat our first place accomplishment from last year.
On March 30th, the RCMP will be at Burnaby Mountain to present on Personal Safety and Awareness. The presentation will take place in the Multi-purpose room from 6pm – 7:30 pm. Everyone is welcome to attend.
