David recently graduated from the University of Windsor Faculty of Law, where he received the Cassels, Brock & Blackwell LLP Centennial Prize in Constitutional Law. Extremely active as a volunteer at both Queen’s and the University of Windsor, he has also received several awards for his commitment to community service. Prior to attending law school, David received an Honours B.A. in Sociology from Queen’ s University, where he was awarded the Agnes Benidickson Tricolour Award for service to the university. He wonders if some of his interest in education law and policy-making stems from the fact that he was raised by one educator, and engaged to be married to another! He is currently completing his articles with the law firm of Fasken Martineau DuMoulin LLP in Toronto.
Advocating for the Recognition of a Constitutional Right to an Education in Canada
Throughout her life, Maureen has been both a student and a teacher. She has degrees in Geology, Education and Music, and was studying Law at Queen’s when she was a CAPSLE Fellow. She taught high school since 1987, taking as many leaves as possible to pursue new areas of learning. Maureen was inspired by Mike Harris to undertake her law degree, motivated by the first-hand experience of the systematic destruction of an educational system in which she had once felt a sense of pride. In her latest pursuit, she integrated her pedagogical background with her developing interest in constitutional law.
