TRU Law 2018 Valedictorian Steven Shergill discusses his journey to, and through, TRU Law School.
Indigenization at the Faculty of Law. The Faculty of Law has had a 100 per cent completion rate since it opened in 2011. Its goal is to attract more Indigenous students. The faculty takes first-year students to a day at the Tk’emlups te Secwépemc First Nation to tour the former residential school and hear from survivors. Second-year students have gone to Pipsell Lake and heard from Secwépemc teachers about land issues and the proposed mine that would have affected the lake. A similar experience for third-year students is next.
The Coyote Project: Lessons from the Land
Aanchal Mogal sets the bar high. At TRU, students are encouraged to put classroom learning into practice, through volunteering, joining a club, signing up for field studies, conducting research, taking a co-op term or studying abroad. Some take it further, devising their own hands-on learning experiences. That’s what Aanchal Mogla did by taking on the complexities of fundraising, contract negotiation, speaker recruitment and selection, event planning and promotion for a TEDx® event at TRU. Her success is our pride.
