Law Students in the Community

Congrats to Ms. Dawnis Kennedy who was recently named a 2006 Trudeau Scholar! She will be soon graduating with an LL.B. from the University of Victoria and then go on to the University of Toronto where she will pursue a PhD in juridical science. A recent UVic article describes Ms. Kennedy's interests in law and her community involvement.
“I wanted to go into law because my interest and my family’s interest were very much about revitalizing our community and culture,” says Kennedy. “Canadian law has had a huge impact upon our communities. I wanted to think about ways that Canadian law could relate more respectfully to indigenous peoples and support the revitalization movement that is happening in indigenous communities.”
