The PBSC McGill and PBSC Université de Montréal chapters are excited to host a cocktail reception together, focused on access to justice with the Honourable Marie Deschamps, former Supreme Court Justice, as our special guest speaker.
Through this event, we hope to bring together law students and members of the community for an evening of networking and discussion. We have also invited speakers from some of our partner organizations who will offer their own visions of the challenges we are facing in improving access to justice in Canada.
All the funds raised through this event are shared by the two chapters and help us continue to grow and offer new and compelling placements for students each year.
