Academia vs. Practical Experience

The Law Society of Canada appoints a special committee in June to consider legal education. They commission submissions from the Osgoode Hall faculty, other law societies, students and practitioners, as well as local and national law associations. Most of these submissions argue for a return to higher entrance standards and for more academic law teaching as a long-term solution. Despite the grim economic climate, students take a night off to watch hockey at the newly opened Maple Leaf Gardens or go dancing at clubs like the Silver Slipper. This is a program from the first game played at the Gardens on November 12, 1931.
