Prior to the cancellation of this year’s Dean for a Day event scheduled for March 19, the judges – Associate Dean (Students) Lisa Dufraimont and Assistant Dean (Students) Mya Rimon –rendered their decision.
Congratulations to this year’s contest winner, Dean for a Day (in waiting) Sebastian Di Domenico. Kudos, too, to runner-up Christie McLeod.
This year’s contest submissions answered the question: What one or two things would you do as Dean to make Osgoode an even better law school?
Sebastian, a second-year JD student, was born in Medellin, Colombia, and came to Canada at the age of seven. He attended York University for his BA (Honours), majoring in Criminology. Later, he obtained an MA in Criminology and Sociolegal Studies from the University of Toronto. He went on to complete his first year of law school at Queen’s University, then decided to transfer to Osgoode. Outside of law school, he enjoys watching soccer, working out, and going to music concerts.
“I decided to participate in the 2020 Dean for a Day Contest because it is a great opportunity to consider how Osgoode can make changes to improve the potential contributions that its graduates make to the legal profession, the legal system, and, most importantly, the community,” said Sebastian.
Christie is a fourth-year JD/MES student, the Founder/Director of Human Rights Hub Winnipeg, and was recently recognized as a Top 30 Under 30 Sustainability Leader by Corporate Knights.
We will be in touch again with Sebastian and Christie regarding their prizes when normal activities resume at the Law School.
