Law in Action Within Schools Programs (LAWS) is an innovative partnership between the University of Toronto Faculty of Law, Osgoode Hall Law School and the Toronto District School Board designed to deliver an education program aimed at supporting, guiding and motivating high school students. LAWS provides a unique law school experience to high school students from across Canada and around the world.
Thomson Rogers hosted a 2015 YSP luncheon where these students met with some of our legal professionals. Our professionals discussed their different career paths as lawyers and highlighted their areas of practice. Hostess for the occasion was senior law clerk Barbara O’Gorman who discussed various careers in law, and introduced lawyers Wendy Moore Mandel (Medical Malpractice); George Karahotzitis (Family Law); Al Burton (Municipal Law); and, Robert Ben (Personal Injury) to the group.
