THE ADVOCATE 413
VOL. 77 PART 3 MAY 2019
Awards Committee in recognition of these students’ significant commitment
to serving the public interest through their volunteer and paid work
in the past.
Another example of student achievement is the selection of TRU Law
students Vincent Li and Betti White as one of the two teams (along with the
team from Allard Law) from among the seven Western Canada law schools
that competed at the MacIntyre Cup hosted by TRU Law in February to
compete at the national Sopinka Cup in Ottawa organized by The Advocates’
COMMUNITY LEGAL CLINIC
The TRU Community Legal Clinic has completed its relocation to long-term
premises at 248 – 2nd Avenue in Kamloops. This new space has enabled the
clinic to increase the number of workstations that are available for law students,
the two B.S.W. students on work placement with the clinic, its five
staff and judge-in-residence the Honourable Hope Hyslop, who has a very
regular volunteer presence.
Let me reiterate our standing invitation to all members of the legal profession
in B.C. to contact us if you have any questions about TRU Law, the
nature and content of our J.D., our priorities or our very talented students.
We would be very pleased to have you visit us and to consider offering your
services as a mentor to first-year law students, as a moot court judge or as
a sessional lecturer. We continue to benefit greatly from exceptional support
from the legal profession, both locally and throughout the province and
beyond; however, more assistance is always welcome.
