“I wanted to go to law school and the courses were just so incredible. I remember taking Popular Trials and covering these trials that changed the landscape of Canadian law and thinking “Wow!”. It was so affirming of my decision to go to law school and it put me head and shoulders above the other kids in my class when I made it to law school, so that [Law and Social Thought] certificate program was very unique.”
