Welcome from the Ultra Vires Editors-in-Chief!

Nick Papageorge (2L) and Maud Rozee (2L)

To the upper years, welcome back! To the 1Ls, welcome to law school! And to everyone, welcome to our new building!

We trust that by now you’ve had a chance to catch your breath after what has surely been a frantic first month. Whether you’ve been busy deciding between which clubs to join, or locked in the game-theory mentality of adding and dropping courses, we hope you now have the opportunity to get settled.

We’ve already started noticing the difference the new building makes. Although we do miss Birge Carnegie a little, it’s nice to have classes and conversations in our very own space. Shari Nathan (2L)’s cover story is a detailed dive into the building’s highlights and issues. Don’t forget that you can send any suggestions you have for the new building to the SLS via their email address: jackmanlawbuilding@gmail.com.

Here at Ultra Vires, we’ve been diligently preparing for this year’s first issue. Our team will be working just as hard throughout the rest of the year to bring you all of the most relevant, entertaining, and hilarious news at the law school, and to foster spirited discussions in our community.

We’ll be making every effort to continue UV’s great work on issues like tuition, financial aid, diversity, and mental health at the law school. We also hope some of you will help us out by pitching an article idea or sharing your unique perspectives in an opinion piece! Always feel free to contribute your ideas, writings, and photography at any time throughout the year—just send us an email at editor@ultravires.ca, or come chat with us!
