  1. Anyone know why TRU has picked the second non-law school affiliated interim dean? This individual is not a lawyer, no history of legal teaching or legal research. Is the provost hand picking the interim deans who are just obedient? Why is this happening? Seems like clocktower is trying to control the law faculty. Whose next a butcher from the culinary school? Dear Colleagues, Weyt-kp I am pleased to announce that Chris Adam will be assuming the position of Interim Dean for the Faculty of Law for three months starting July 1. We are grateful for her support of TRU and the Faculty of Law during this transition period, and look forward to finalizing our search for a new dean. Chris has held the role of Dean of Students, Faculty of Student Development since joining TRU in 2010. She has led a wide range of academic and student services, including Career and Experiential Learning, Counselling Services and Accessibility Services, and initiatives such as the Sexualized Violence Policy Consultation and the President’s Task Force on Mental Health. Chris completed her BA in English Literature at the University of Ottawa, followed by a Certificate in Teaching English as a Second Language (CTESL) and a Master of Arts in Applied Language Studies at Carleton University. She is passionate about supporting university students in the pursuit of their personal and professional goals. Sara Wolfe will continue her role as Acting Dean of Students, Faculty of Student Development until Sept. 30, a role she began in January to replace Chris during her six-month administrative leave. I would like to take this opportunity to formally thank Dennis Acreman for his dedication and leadership in the Faculty of Law for the past six months, and wish him all of the very best as he begins his much-deserved administrative leave. Please join me in wishing Chris success as she takes on the leadership and support of the students, faculty and staff of TRU Law. Warm wishes, Christine Bovis-Cnossen Provost and Vice-President Academic and Research
  2. It's pretty silly to move to Kamloops when courses will be delivered online and the law school will closed. Rent on average is a $1000/month and one year lease would equate to $12,000. Why would someone spend that amount of money makes no sense to me tbh when you can conduct your studies anywhere around the world. Important to consider that Canadian law schools may follow the pass/fail grading policy too. SAVE YOUR $ and reduce your debt.
  3. With credit card companies and general loans interest being lowered can anyone confirm or provide info whether they were able to renegotiate their student line of credit interest rate or amount of $?
  4. Sense around campus is TRU would rather follow UofT because: "On balance, only the general credit/no credit scheme avoids problematic evaluative distinctions at a time when the COVID-19 pandemic is affecting students in highly differentiated ways that are independent of academic commitment and ability" - UofT Law Dean
  5. Rumours around campus were faculty support mandatory credit / no credit but could not officially vote on it today. Would be astounding if the remain the only school in Canada to do grades
  6. Considering only 3 Universities are left (Uvic, TRU, Lakehead) pretty sad company for UVIC
  7. Is this confirmed. Or are they still waiting for an update?
  8. Do we have confirmation honours means A for Dal or could it possibly mean B or higher?
  9. What does honours mean? and how is different from pass
  10. Updated Complete list of CDN Law School Grading Schemes: UBC - Optional Pass/Fail Lakehead - Graded as of now - Updated Decision early next week - like P/F if all other schools implement U of Alberta - Mandatory Pass/Fail U of Calgary - Optional Pass/Fail Dalhousie - Graded exams (no curve), currently under review due to student backlash U of Manitoba - Graded Exams, currently under review due to student backlash McGill - Optional Pass/Fail (Edit) Université de Moncton - Optional Pass/Fail U of New Brunswick - Optional Pass/Fail (opt in before assessments) Osgoode - Mandatory P/F * Waiting for final approval U of Ottawa - Optional Pass/Fail (for all courses) Queen's - Optional Pass/Fail U of Saskachewan - Optional Pass/Fail Thompson Rivers - Graded exams, currently under review, Petition signed by 200 students sent to President U of Toronto - Mandatory Pass/Fail U of Victoria - Graded Exams, Dean states it "could change given the evolving situation", Updated Decision coming today Western - Mandatory Pass/Fail U of Windsor - Mandatory Pass Fail TOTAL PASS/FAIL - 12 (70%) TOTAL GRADED - 5 (30%)
