The Osgoode Society has a Student Ambassador Programme at each of the Toronto law schools. Student Ambassadors organize periodic legal history events to promote the Society and subject to interested colleagues.  The events also give the students the opportunity to connect with the lawyers and judges who comprise the Society’s directors.

The most recent such event was held in October and featured a discussion of the Persons’ Case by Society President Robert Sharpe and Society Oral History Co-Ordinator Professor Patricia McMahon, authors of a book on the case. Professor Sonia Lawrence joined with them to speak on the continuing significance of the case for constitutional interpretation.

More events will be held in the winter term, 2024. Watch this space for announcements. Students interested in the Student Ambassador Programme should contact Society director Jon Silver at
