Should we go paperless?

Each year, the Faculty mails out its annual printed magazine to its 7,400 alumni.

Prompted by several requests from alumni, we are examining the possibility of going paperless/digital in the near future, both to reduce our environmental footprint and to deliver news using your preferred medium.

What do our alumni think? Tell us by filling out our short survey: www.mcgill.ca/law/survey

Participants will be entered in a draw for a McGill Law hoodie.
