29 May 2020 - Graduating during turbulent times: Lessons from McGill Law alumni

Dean Robert Leckey and Sophie Roy-Lafleur, director of the Career Development Office, moderated a Q&A with alumni Kiran Singh, BCL/LLB’09, Patricia Kosseim, BCom’87, BCL/LLB’92, and the Hon. Clément Gascon, BCL’81. Each of the panelists graduated during one of Canada’s last recessions: 2008-2009, 1990-1992, and 1981-1982. They discussed how they launched rewarding careers during difficult economic times, emphasizing the enduring value of McGill law degrees, hard work, the importance of relationships, and the potential to learn from failure.

21 May 2020 - Power, people and the pandemic: the legal sides of COVID-19

Governments are taking unprecedented steps to deal with the COVID-19 crisis, but how far can – and should – they go to protect us? What is the optimal balance between protecting public health, reacting to rapidly changing scientific knowledge, and maintaining citizens’ trust? Will individuals or groups bring lawsuits based on the violation of their rights or on injury caused by, for instance, healthcare resource allocations, travel restrictions or mandatory business closures? McGill University hosted a live webcast with Professors Lara Khoury, Alana Klein and Marie-Eve Couture-Ménard (U. Sherbrooke), three public health law experts who are undertaking research on these questions, with the support of McGill’s MI4 Emergency COVID-19 Research Funding.
