2020 Dean for a Day Contest

Move in Here - Office of the Dean - Thursday March 19th

Here’s your chance to ramp up your creativity and inspire some new thinking about the Law School.

The 2020 Dean for a Day contest runs from Monday, February 10 to Tuesday, March 10, culminating in one student trading places with Dean Mary Condon on Thursday, March 19 as Dean for a Day.

All Osgoode students are invited to participate in the contest by thoughtfully answering the following question in 500 words or less, or in a video of two minutes or less:

What one or two things would you do as Dean to make Osgoode an even better law school? 

Deadline for submissions, which should be sent to vcorner@osgoode.yorku.ca,  is noon on Tuesday, March 10. (You can also publicize your entry if you wish on social media using #ozd4d.)

This year’s contest judges – Associate Dean (Students) Lisa Dufraimont and Assistant Dean (Students) Mya Rimon – will review the submissions and pick the entry that they believe is most deserving of recognition as well as a runner-up.

The Dean for a Day winner, who will be announced on Monday, March 16, will move into Dean Condon’s office on Thursday, March 19 and she will channel her back-to-school vibe and attend the student’s classes.
