The team at Hakemi & Ridgedale would like to thank summer law students Marie Turcott and Dennis Whincup for their contributions and enthusiasm this summer. We know that it was not ideal to start a new summer position while working from home during a global pandemic! But from the very beginning of the summer program, Dennis and Marie were eager to get involved in various assignments including researching, drafting claims and applications, presenting on various legal topics at our firm’s lunch and learn seminars, and preparing for and attending a 29-day commercial mining trial. Our lawyers were also pleased to spend time mentoring Marie and Dennis to ensure that they still had a fun, safe, and enriching summer experience.
Marie will be returning to study at the University of British Columbia Allard School of Law and Dennis will be returning to Thompson Rivers University Faculty of Law. We are looking forward to having Marie and Dennis return to our firm next summer when they begin their articles.
Congratulations, Marie and Dennis, we wish you success during your final year of law school!
