Congratulations to this year's recipients:
Rebecca Whitmore, CBABC Entrance Award
Aysegul Karakucuk, Canadian Bar Insurance Association Student Achievement Award
"The CBA Mentorship program is truly one of a kind. I think it is an excellent opportunity for both law students and legal professionals to participate in. We, as students, often find ourselves unsure of what the legal profession is all about. We are unsure of what areas of interest are available, and alternative career paths. Having the opportunity to speak with lawyers in different areas of practices serves the important role of demystifying the legal profession.
On the other hand, the CBA mentorship program is an excellent opportunity for legal professionals to share their experiences and help young law students feel a little more at ease about what is to come after law school.
I truly can’t say enough good things about this program. I am excited to see the program growing from year to year, and I encourage all students and legal professionals to participate if they are able to."
Kirstn Mase, CBABC UVic Law Student Representative
