My first week with BCLI and CCEL as their Summer Legal Research Student was a whirlwind of consultations, focus group meetings, and BCLI’s 20th anniversary event. It is only my second week with BCLI and CCEL, but I can already tell that I am going to enjoy my summer!
My very first impression of BCLI and CCEL was how friendly and supportive the staff are. The BCLI/CCEL team is a group of very passionate people who are dedicated to the important work that BCLI and CCEL undertake. I am confident that the BCLI/CCEL team will provide me with the support I need to make the most of my summer with them.
I have been struck by the significance of BCLI and CCEL’s work. The BCLI and CCEL are conducting very important research on laws and policies that affect you and me! Law reform is an imperative part of the democratic process. It ensures that laws remain as dynamic as the people they affect. It is for this reason that the work that BCLI and CCEL do is so incredibly vital. The BCLI and CCEL work tirelessly to promote the interests of folks like you and me, so that laws are appropriate, current, and relevant.
I am thrilled to have the opportunity to work with the BCLI/CCEL team this summer. I have already had terrific opportunities for learning in the two weeks I have been with BCLI/CCEL, and I know that I will gain so many more valuable experiences.
