What follows is the full-length November 12 submission by Student Caucus to the Law Society of Upper Canada (LSUC) in response to LSUC’s Pathways Report on the future of the articling requirement.
ELENA IOSEF and LEEANNE FOOTMAN <Contributors> Throughout this semester you’ve probably seen advertisements for L&L meetings on Osgoode’s TV screens, you’ve gotten e-mails from us (perhaps a few too many), seen our Exec members wandering the halls, and wondered what exactly we’ve been up to.
RORY MCGOVERN <Contributor> Propagandizing war through social media is a total and utter disgrace. Why would anyone show the world their ugliness by putting their sadism on display?
ALEXANDER YU <Contributor> “Greetings, travellers!” *Correct identification of the source of this quote entitles one to a coffee courtesy of me. Yes, there’s only one correct answer.
JEFF MITCHELL <Contributor> It’s that time of the year again. With exams around the corner, Osgoode students take a seat in the Library to study. As upper years will recall, the “exam period restricted access policy” is just around the corner.
In these pages lies Student Caucus (SC)’s response to the Law Society of Upper Canada (LSUC)’s Pathways Report on the future of articling. It is a commendable and articulate effort, to be sure, especially in view of a rather tight deadline, which the response notes. But alas! I’ve been forgotten again.
JIHEE (MARIE) PARK <Staff Writer> November 17th was World Prematurity Awareness Day. It may have been a singular date to give a moment to think about one of the leading causes of neonatal mortality and increased risk of a multitude of neurological, cardiovascular, and other conditions.
MICHAEL CAPITANO <Contributor> During law school, it’s easy to lose sight of oneself. As exams approach and the craziness of 1L weighs on our minds, I find myself going through old things that I’ve written.
Movember If you haven’t already, head over to the Osgoode team’s mo space and make a donation to support prostate cancer research.
RICARDO GOLEC <Website Editor> I really like procrastinating. A lot. In fact, I’m doing it right now. In order to feel less bad about it, I’ve endeavoured this year to try to rationalize my procrastination by way of increasingly hare-brained schemes to “learn” by not learning. Obviously I’ve had varying degrees of success.
