Law'15 student wins national military award

For Jennifer Dumoulin, Law'15, winning a prestigious Canadian essay competition isn’t just a personal triumph – it’s a tribute to her upbringing. She was selected by a jury at the end of July as the winner of the Sword & Scale essay contest, an award established by the National Military Law Section of the Canadian Bar Association to promote and reward interest in military law topics in Canadian law schools.

Making competitive moot points count

Thinking on their feet, improvising under pressure and working as a team – these important skills enabled law students Emily Evangelista, Law’15, and Ben Snow, Law’14, to help their Queen’s teams capture first place at two key mooting competitions this spring.

Now, as the result of a $100,000 gift from Toronto litigation firm Lenczner Slaght, Queen’s will be able to further expand and deepen the range of mooting opportunities it can offer its students, giving them the chance to hone their courtroom skills in a real-life environment.

Tricolour Society, students' highest peer tribute, welcomes LSS President

The Society’s first-ever celebration ahead of new members’ graduation brought together their families and friends to honour the latest winners of the Agnes Benidickson Tricolour Award, the highest tribute paid to students for their distinguished service to the University in non-athletic, extra-curricular activities.
