My Hometown’s (Supposed) Experience with Satanism

Dylan Robertson (3L) My hometown is a small city in Saskatchewan called Martensville. Calling it a city is something of a misnomer in my eyes, because aside from that title there isn’t anything separating it from the hundred other sleepy Prairie towns that dot the province. This includes the fact that, like any small town, […]

Edmonton is Not the Worst

Robynne Thompson (2L)  So, you’ve moved to Edmonton. Or maybe you’re from here. Either way, you may be feeling a bit disappointed about living in Alberta’s capital, especially given the recent decisions made in our Legislature.

Tortes and Torts: Eating Green with Anita Nowinka

Robynne Thompson (2L)  Tortes and Torts. Food and law school. The article I thought I would stop writing in 2L but can’t think of anything else to write about.  The end of summer, that bittersweet time where I’m actually excited to go back to school but I know two days in I’ll be wishing I […]

Dylan Robertson (3L)     Since June, the city of Hong Kong has been paralyzed by protests and clashes between pro-democracy citizens and the Hong Kong Police. What originally started out as opposition to a proposed law which would have allowed for the extradition of citizens and foreign nationals to the Chinese mainland has blossomed into […]

Ten Survival Tips for Incoming Law Students

Taylor Maxston (3L) #1 – Put Your Past Behind You and Focus on the Road Ahead While there was a brief stint in your life when the LSAT was the center of the universe, the subject will seldom (if ever) come up in law school and your career pursuits. Take pride in all the hard […]

Practical Advice for Finals Preparation

Dylan Robertson (2L) Congratulations! You have survived the memo, conquered your midterms, nailed your moot, and completely failed your parents by drinking multiple times a week. That can only mean one thing: you’re nearly done your first year of law! Unfortunately, there’s one last thing standing between you and summer: finals. Never fear, because Canons […]

My Thoughts on Leaving Neverland

Dylan Robertson (2L) When Leaving Neverland was first announced, I was dismissive of it. Like many fans of Michael Jackson, I considered the jury’s verdict in People v Jackson to be the final word regarding the child molestation accusations which haunted the singer in the final two decades of his life. My first impression of […]

Tortes and Torts: Doughnuts and Me

Robynne Thompson (1L) Tortes and Torts. Interviews + Food. This month, I set out with same intention as every other month – to interview someone and eat good food. However, due to unforeseen circumstances (read: laziness) and impending exams (read: procrastination), I failed to organize an interview in time for the very strict Canons deadline. […]
