The Criminal Law Group (formerly known as Student Advocates for Justice) aims to expose law students to the world of criminal law. This group strives to create a community amongst those who love crim, shed light on critical issues in the field from both the Crown and defense perspective, and provide opportunities to meet and network with practicing lawyers and judges in the field. This is achieved by hosting speakers from the legal community about a diverse array of topics throughout the year. The group also hosts a dynamic workshop where students are introduced to direct and cross examination techniques by some of Winnipeg’s best criminal lawyers. Make sure to also attend the Criminal Law Group’s “Crime and Cheese”, which provides an unparalleled experience to mingle, network (and drink wine) with the large array of Winnipeg’s criminal lawyers and judges. We hope to see you at our events!
