Law Faculty Homecoming and the Law Society

October 5, 2018 — 
Without the University of Manitoba’s Faculty of Law, the Law Society of Manitoba wouldn’t have lawyers, and without the Law Society of Manitoba, there would be no place in Manitoba to license graduating law students for practice. It makes complete sense for the two organizations to work together regularly, and during the University of Manitoba’s Homecoming week Sept 24 to 30, 2018, the close relationship between the two couldn’t have been more clear.

Building Bridges conference brings Indigenous and Newcomer communities together

May 17, 2018 — 
Last year in May, 2017, a unique conference titled "Building Bridges Between Canada's Indigenous and Newcomer Groups" was held at Thunderbird House in Winnipeg. The event resulted from discussions on Canada’s 150th and the conflicting senses of pride, frustration, pain and hope alongside the important work of welcoming and successfully settling newcomers to Canada; as well as the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s Calls to Action that mandated a more inclusive history of Indigenous experiences and the history of residential schools in the newcomer information kit, citizenship test and oath.
