Nick Noonan, President
Nick is a 3rd year student and is your 2020-2021 President of the Manitoba Law Students’ Association. Though he is probably best known for his hair or his outlines, Nick has also held a variety of positions at Robson, including as President of the Debate Society, Vice-President of the Law Symposium, and Vice-President of the Business Law Group. During summers, Nick works both as a Research Assistant to the Dean and at Fillmore Riley LLP in downtown Winnipeg. After graduation, Nick will be clerking at the Federal Court in Ottawa.
Prior to his time at Robson Hall, Nick completed a Bachelor of Commerce (Honours) Degree at the Asper School of Business, where he was a 4-time Academic All-Canadian as a member of the Varsity Swim Team (seriously, he has the speedos to prove it).
In his free time, you can find Nick listening to a podcast or audiobook, playing with his girlfriend’s dog and cat, yelling Jeopardy answers at his TV, bemoaning his fandom of the Minnesota Vikings, and playing just about every sport, with his ability levels ranging from competitive (swimming, tennis, football) to borderline incompetent (golf).
Nick is always happy to strike up a conversation with anyone who is interested, and would love to talk to you (about anything, ranging from law school, to books, to fantasy football, and everything in between). He loves law school, and is excited to share this passion with you!
Braeden Cornick, Vice-President External
Braeden is a 3rd year student at Robson Hall and Vice-President External of the Manitoba Law Students Association.

Braeden works as a Summer Student at MLT Aikins LLP in the summer and previously worked at the Manitoba Law Journal.
Outside of school, Braeden is an avid sports player, book reader, and hot tub enthusiast.
If he’s not busy bragging about having attended St. Paul’s High School, Braeden is always willing to talk about anything new or old students are interested in.
Meghan Bjorklund, Vice-President Internal
Meghan (she/her) is a 3rd year student and the Vice-President Internal of the MLSA for the 2020-2021 year. The VPI is responsible for a variety of activities hosted by the spirit, social and sports committees, and advocating for students’ diverse interests within the MLSA. The VPI also oversees the Accessibility Committee and the Constitution and Policy Committee, as well as all of the student groups.
Meghan found her interest in law through her Bachelor of Commerce (International Business and Human Resources), although her passion lies in public law and human rights. At Robson Hall, Meghan has served on the Accessibility Committee and the Health and Elder Law Student Group. She has volunteered for the negotiations and advocacy finals, and for the Solomon Greenberg Moot Trial. Meghan got involved with the Refugee Sponsorship Support Program in her first year and later with Welcome Place, where she continues to coordinate the law student volunteers.
When Meghan is not at school, she enjoys spending as much time outside as possible – parks, camping and patios. Meghan tries to maintain that gold-standard “balanced lifestyle” with yoga and spin classes, and can be found at many local arts events. Meghan’s dream non-legal career would be interior design.
Meghan loves talking to new people (especially about travelling) and is always willing to lend a hand. Feel free to say hello, in English or in French!
