This event requires registration and has limited spots. Please see info below.
In 2015 the Canadian Chapter of the International Association of Women Judges (CCIAWJ) began a programme to put a human face on the judiciary. “An Evening with Women Judges” was hosted at 10 law schools across Canada, Robson Hall being one of the first schools.
Because of its success, the CCIAWJ has made this an annual event, making sure that all law schools have an opportunity to engage. Robson Hall was selected in 2017 and again for this year (2018/2019).
The evening will be hosted jointly by the Dean’s Office and the CCIAWJ. A panel of 4 judges, Justice Janice leMaistre from the Court of Appeal; Justice Brenda Keyser (QB General) and Justice Annette Horst (QB Family) from the Court of Queen’s Bench; and Judge Tracy Lord from the Provincial Court.
The evening will include dinner and an opportunity to meet with the judges in a more relaxed setting.
This event is open to 24 women law student in 2nd and 3rd year. Please sign up at the Dean’s Office to ensure your seat.
If you attended the Evening with Women Judges in 2017 and are interested in attending this year, your name will be added to a wait list, giving first opportunity to those who have not previously attended.
