Richard Garrett, a member of the M'Chigeeng First Nation (Manitoulin Island) and a third year Student Caseworker with LU Community Legal Services, was recently invited by Mr. Oliver Rusnak (Aboriginal Student Support worker at St. Patrick's High School) to attend at the high school on October 11th, 2017 and speak to students.
Richard presented to a number of Indigenous students at the high school, on his personal journey of apply to and attending law school at Lakehead University. He discussed his pursuit of a career as a lawyer and encouraged the students to consider law as a career path. He talked about the law school admission process and writing the LSAT. He also provided students with an overview of the Canadian Constitution and their rights there under, including rights to counsel, and rights with respect to search and seizure by police.
Thanks to St. Patrick's High School for hosting this terrific event!
