Promotion of French Law Practice Program & Internships

Posted By Administration, September 9, 2019
Now in its sixth year, the French Law Practice Program (LPP) at the University of Ottawa has a proven track record in the legal community.

The success of the uOttawa LPP can be attributed to the generous support that we received from the legal community. More than 200 lawyers from across the province have participated in the uOttawa LPP in some way since its beginning. We hope to build upon this great momentum again this year and ask you for your support to continue our mission of training future lawyers who can offer high quality legal services in French and in English and who can rise to the challenge of practising law in the 21st century.

You can participate in the uOttawa LPP by offering a four-month placement (from January to April 2020) to a uOttawa LPP candidate.

Why offer a placement to a uOttawa LPP candidate?


• Access to “practice-ready” interns: Before starting their placements, uOttawa LPP candidates will have undergone an intensive four-month practical program in a simulated law firm during which they will become familiar with 9 areas of law (administrative law, business law, civil litigation, criminal law, employment law, family law, immigration & refugees, real estate, wills and estates), as well as all aspects of the legal practice, including communicating with clients, legal research and writing, strategic thinking, oral advocacy, electronic firm management, time management, billing, developing a business plan, as well as networking.
• Increase your organisation’s capacity to provide French services: All uOttawa LPP candidates are fluent and able to provide legal services in French. Our program includes a rigorous legal writing and oral advocacy component in French.
• Access to bi-jural and bilingual interns: Many uOttawa LPP candidates are trained in both civil law and common law and are bilingual.
Promote access to justice: By providing a placement to a uOttawa LPP candidate, you contribute to training the next generation of lawyers ready to offer legal services.

If you wish to learn more about offering a placement to a uOttawa LPP candidate, please contact Christiane Saad, Director of the uOttawa Law Practice Program by telephone at 613-562-5800 (extension 1011) or by email at csaad@uottawa.ca.

Shelter Movers Ottawa Inaugural Gala - September 25

Posted By Administration, September 5, 2019

SHELTER MOVERS OTTAWA INAUGURAL GALA ~ SEPTEMBER 25

MUSEUM OF NATURE

“YOU FOUND THE COURAGE TO LEAVE. WE’LL FIND THE HANDS TO HELP.”

Shelter Movers Ottawa has moved over 250 women and children fleeing abusive homes since its inception in October, 2017. This is having a significant, local impact. www.sheltermovers.com

In 2018, a woman or girl was killed every 2.5 days in Canada, most often by an intimate partner or family member. Women tend to return to the abusive home approximately 6 times. It is the children living in these homes who, themselves, often become abusers when they become adults.

It costs approximately $200 to move a family. $200 is also the cost of a ticket to the Gala (a $100 tax receipt is given!)

The Gala includes a three course meal, live entertainment, access to fabulous silent auction items and a great networking opportunity.

Table Sponsors are acknowledged in print, on social media, and from the podium the night of the event. Event Sponsorship is available as well!
