The World Cup of Hockey

Patrick Coones (2L) As a Canadian, I can only be overjoyed that we have the privilege of saying that we own hockey. As many of you probably know, Canada won the World Cup of Hockey in a decisive 2 game sweep of Team Europe. For those of you who have no idea what the World […]

Trump v Clinton

PRO Clinton – Clinton for POTUS Anonymous If I was feeling lazy, I could simply post a photo of Donald Trump and let that stand as an argument in support of Hillary Clinton’s campaign for president. This has truly been one of the strangest, most baffling political battles to have occurred in my lifetime and […]

Two BC patients claim Charter rights infringed

Sylvia Nicholles (1L) and Anisha Karia (1L) Two patients who were involuntarily admitted into care have brought a case against the province of British Columbia challenging the constitutionality of BC’s mental health legislation. Mary MacLaren and D.C., allege sections of BC’s Mental Health Act (MHA) infringe on sections 7 and 15 of the Canadian Charter […]

Leviathan Reborn

Spencer Morrison (2L) Leviathan has again raised his ugly head, and we are left to live with the disturbing consequences. The story begins in 2014, when Randy Wall, a Calgary realtor and a practicing Jehovah’s Witness, was expelled from the Highwood Congregation by a panel of elders. His crime?  Getting drunk and insulting his wife. […]

Law Show Kick Off Party: Alice in Wonderlaw Invites Us Down the Rabbit Hole

Hailee Barber (3L) Preparations for this year’s Law Show, the highly anticipated Alice in Wonderlaw, are now properly underway thanks to the inaugural Law Show Kick Off Party held at Dewey’s on September 30. I am happy to report that if the awesome turnout and the creativity and enthusiasm that were evident in the iPhone […]

Beyond the Buckets of Blood: Horror Food for Thought

Ryan Ackerman (3L) The Witch (2015) is an odd horror movie, bearing so many similarities to Rosemary’s Baby (1968) that it’s difficult to write about them separately, so I won’t. They both trade heavily in the fear of the unknown, and in the clues presented in-film that the unknown is actually our worst nightmares come […]

Hallowe’en Costume Ideas

Megan Schaub (3L) HalLAWeen is approaching. If you’re still searching for the perfect law-themed costume, look no further. Here are a few suggestions, both amusing and frightening, ranked from those that require little-to-no effort to those that are a little bit more labor-intensive: Judge Judy: black robes + lace collar + wig + gavel Lionel […]

Fantasy Football – Who’s Hot and Who’s Not

Patrick Coones (2L) Here we go again: another season of FOOTBALL! But you probably don’t care about that, do you? Yeah, you. You know who you are. You’re only here because you wanted to make someone think you know sports. Or maybe you wanted to have something you could do with your boyfriend. Or maybe […]

Blue Jays: #OurMoment

Allana McComb (3L) It is well-known that the Blue Jay’s offence struggled throughout all of September despite having the best pitching staff in the American League. However, that all changed starting with the Wild Card game against the Orioles on October 4th. Stroman didn’t get the run support he was hoping for, but in the […]
