Marianne Hardy-Dussault and Valérie Simard winners of the AQDC writing contest
On April 24, 2009, the Québec Society of Comparative Law (AQDC) held its annual symposium at McGill’s Faculty of Law, under the theme of La circulation des modèles juridiques: Thème classique, réalités contemporaines. Part of the proceedings included announcing the winners of the AQDC’s 2008-2009 writing contest for undergraduate and graduate students, who this year turned to be two McGill Law students.
LLM student Marianne Hardy-Dussault won the Graduate prize for her Master’s thesis « Le port de signes religieux dans les établissements publics d'enseignement québécois et français: une liberté, deux modèles », which was written under the supervision of Professor Colleen Sheppard.
In turn, BCL/LLB student Valérie Simard won the Undergraduate prize for her essay, "Liberalizing the Ownership of Legal Service Providers: In the Public Interest", which she wrote under the supervision of Professor Wendy A. Adams.
The Faculty of Law warmly congratulates them both for their contributions to comparative law.
