Celebrating 20 years of the Manitoba Court of Appeal clerkship program

June 10, 2024 — 
Twenty years ago, a young professor at the University of Manitoba’s Faculty of Law approached the Dean with an idea: to ask the Manitoba Court of Appeal to take on third year law students as clerks to gain hands-on experience in seeing how the Province’s top court operates. As the 20th fall term of the program approaches, the Faculty and the Court realized the impact of the program’s long-lasting legacy and summoned alumni of the program from far and wide to celebrate at a luncheon held on May 10th, 2024.
