Not an immediate first-choice articling student for law firms, Brayden McDonald [JD/19] turned a sow’s ear of a situation into a silk purse, by returning to school for a Master of Laws degree at the University of Manitoba’s Faculty of Law. Now about to tread the (virtual) boards to receive his LLM parchment, McDonald has his name on a number of published scholarly works and on a Charter challenge court case.
The University of Manitoba’s Faculty of Law is in the process of preparing a new Strategic Plan to guide its direction into the future. The Strategic Planning committee, tasked by the Dean’s Office with coordinating development of the Plan, has determined that it will be a short, readable, useful document intended to be referenced frequently. The Plan will be directly informed by input from stakeholders including alumni, members of the practicing bar, judiciary, faculty, students and staff.
