Service Before Self

Osgoode becomes the first Canadian law school to introduce a public interest graduation requirement, to promote the ethic of community service and public-mindedness. Students are required to complete forty hours of unpaid, law related, public interest work. As a result of a student-led initiative, the Mediation Intensive Clinic is introduced. The Clinic’s first director, Leanne Shafir ‘05 (LLM), can be seen in the first row, second from the right.
