Against all odds, annual Law Banquet connects mentors and students virtually

March 12, 2021 — 

The Eighth Annual Robson Hall Law Banquet took place this past week on Monday, March 8, 2021. The Law Banquet Co-Coordinators, law students Taylor Antonchuk and Jordan Sinder, were very pleased to welcome 150 attendees this year, including a majority of the 1L class and lawyers from each of Manitoba’s five biggest law firms: Thompson Dorfman Sweatman LLP, MLT Aikins LLP, Fillmore Riley ​LLP, Taylor McCaffrey ​LLP, and Pitblado Law. 

The Annual Law Banquet is special because it enables lawyers, law students, and members of Manitoba’s legal community to create meaningful, long-lasting connections. This year’s event was no exception. Students and lawyers engaged with each other by participating in team trivia challenges, and by enjoying a virtual dinner together, as they alternated through virtual breakout rooms. Considering the circumstances, it was truly a wonderful event.

The Co-Coordinators and the Professional Development Committee would like to once again thank all attendees and generous sponsors for a successful event!
