Do you wonder about the impact or positive change you can have on the law? Do you ever wonder about the student groups that you can join during law school?
By bringing different legal actors and student groups from UofT Law like Out in Law, etc. we aim to celebrate the challenges that many people have overcome in the field of law.
The event will consist of a panel of representatives from diverse student associations affiliated with U of T's Faculty of Law.The panel will focus on informing students about involvement in Law School.
It will also aim to introduce groups that aspire to identify and work towards the removal of systematic and other barriers facing marginalized groups in relation to law school and the legal profession.
