Osgoode JD/MBA students Al Hounsell and Brendan Monahan have received awards from the University of Miami School of Law’s innovative LawWithoutWalls program.
Hounsell was a member of the winning team for substance for LWOW X on March 27. Monahan was a member of the winning team for substance for LWOW X Compliance on April 10.
According to the program organizers, the winning team for substance is the team with “the most substantively sound Project of Worth. The winning team for substance was clearly the product of extensive research, effective understanding of the problem, synthesis of innovation, financial investigation, and a well-thought plan to bring the Project of Worth to market.”
It was the second year in a row that Osgoode and the Schulich School of Business have been invited to participate in the LawWithoutWalls program. The Jay and Barbara Hennick Centre for Business and Law organized the JD/MBA students’ participation in the program.
LWOW brings together business and law students from around the world to create a business plan in response to a problem in legal education or practice. The program concludes with a closing conference where the business plans are judged by a multidisciplinary panel, including venture capitalists.
