Law student support suite developed amid COVID-19

In response to COVID-19, Windsor Law has launched a suite of additional student supports including enhanced career service resources, a pandemic-specific emergency bursary program, and 30 new summer opportunities for law students who either lost their summer placements or were unable to secure positions due to the global pandemic.

“We wanted to make every effort to assist our student body during these challenging times,” says Laverne Jacobs, associate dean, research and graduate studies. “This pandemic affects us all and it’s important that we respond as a compassionate community.”

The 30 new summer opportunities are comprised of four Law Commission of Ontario Student Scholar Fellowships, nine Ianni Student Fellowships, and 17 additional research assistantships, offered through Windsor Law’s Office of the Associate Dean, Research and Graduate Studies.

The Expanded Research Assistant Program offers law students hands-on experience in legal areas ranging from Indigenous Legal Orders to Class Action Lawsuits, working under 17 different Windsor Law professors or clinics.
