Chief Justice Ritu Khullar provided the keynote address and brought greetings from the courts.

Other orientation speakers included Bill Hendsbee, KC, president of the Law Society of Alberta, Mosom Rick Lightning, Dean Barbara Billinglsey, Vice Dean James Muir, student wellness coordinator Michael Rajan, and Olive Bensler, president of the Law Students’ Association.

In addition to JD students, the Faculty also welcomed 18 students to the Internationally Trained Lawyer Pathway.
