Law students recognized for contributions to social justice

University is not just a place to secure a career, says Tanya Basok, “It’s a place to become a good global citizen and break down the walls of injustice.”

Director of the Centre for Studies in Social Justice, she bestowed its 2012 Student Social Justice Project of the Year Award on the Charter Project. Formed in observance of the 30th anniversary of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, the group promotes understanding of this landmark document.
