This year, Faculty of Law professors have been engaging prolifically in national conversations about COVID-19, Indigenous rights, Civil Liberties and Charter Rights among other important topics. Here is a compilation of some of their writings published in and for such public arenas as newspapers and made available to Canadians beyond academia.
Acting Dean of Law, David Asper, Q.C., is very interested in people, so when he started to get to know the professors and students who make up the Faculty of Law community housed at Robson Hall, he decided to make a 'podcast' series for the Faculty's Youtube Channel. At the end of his own series, he was invited to interview one of Robson Hall’s illustrious alumni, International Criminal Court Judge Kimberly Prost [LLB/81], who fondly remembered her days as a student at Robson Hall.
The University of Manitoba's Faculty of Law team of Janelle Gobin and Anna Siemens, Jessica Humphries and Madison Parker had an extraordinary year, placing third overall. Significantly, this is the first time in over 10 years that the team from Robson Hall has placed in the top four teams of the Gale Cup, which took place virtually, February 26 – 27, 2021.
