You made it.
Applications are over and law school is beginning. The next few weeks will be an intense transition from graduate school, from work, from years off, to a rigorous but beautiful learning process.
The CLSS is the Faculty of Law’s official student government, comprised of students from both the English and French Common law programs. We want to ensure you have the very basic tools necessary to hit the ground running. This guide was inspired by the 2015-2016 CLSS Executive Survival Guide, and most of the information has remained the same. We’ve changed some areas in this guide with more updated information and twists of our own.
This guide will provide you with an overview of administrative logistics, academic affairs, student involvement initiatives, and then the little things that count for a lot (food, where to go when you can’t study anymore, things to read when case law gets blurry).
At any time during your first year, contact any of the executive members with questions. We ran our campaigns for you, were elected for you, and are working for you.
If you believe we aren’t the right ones to contact, Professor Lynda Collins will be your First Year Program Director. Contact her at email@example.com.
Pace yourself and enjoy yourself. The next three years will be nothing short of memorable and worthwhile, not only for your careers as lawyers, but as leaders in the legal profession.
Welcome and chat soon, The CLSS Executive
