Manitoba Indigenous Law Students’ Association (MILSA) is inviting interested Robson Hall students to become members of MILSA and/or join our email list. There is no membership fee and time commitment is up to you. While we do have a classic Robson Hall structure (ex.

Our next general meeting is Tuesday, November 19th, 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm in Room 200G! Come by and see if MILSA is for you.

Some MILSA opportunities (past and future):

Our Stories, Our Art fundraiser, Disrupt the System fundraiser, Orange Shirt Day awareness & photo, bannock taco sales, MILSA networking event 2019, Turtle Lodge event 2018, guest speakers and the Indigenous Youth Outreach Program (IYOP) with Level.

If you would like to join our email list please respond to robsonhallmilsa@gmail.com with your email address and name. MILSA email list and general members receive notice of meetings, highlights of MILSA action items, notice of local Indigenous events and events/meetings in collaboration with other Indigenous student groups on campus.

The MBA Legal Research Section invites law students and professors to present their recent or ongoing legal research projects. Each presenter will have five minutes to present, followed by a five minute question period. We are hoping to create a forum in which legal practitioners, students and academics can come together to learn about the interesting legal research that is occurring within the Manitoba legal community. Refreshments will be provided.
